A Putney man is due to appear in court next month after being accused of dumping a huge flytip.

This came after a large pile of waste was found dumped in Putney Park Lane at the end of May.

Included in the flytip was a carpet, microwave, folding bed, plastic laundry baskets and more than a dozen black binbags.

The summons follows an investigation carried out by the Wandsworth Council’s parks police service, which led them to the front door of a nearby home.

The maximum penalty that can be imposed by the courts following conviction for a serious flytip offence is an unlimited fine and/or a prison sentence of up to five years.

The man will appear in Lavender Hill Magistrates on August 14.
