A fly-tipper in Croydon has been ordered to pay thousands of pounds in costs and compensation.

Louis Robinson was caught dumping 10 tonnes of waste outside garages on Thorneloe Gardens in Waddon.

It cost the council more than £1,500 to clean up his waste, which included a carpet, sofas and bathroom furniture.

Now, the 29 year old must pay nearly £2,000 and must carry out 240 hours of unpaid work.

Police caught Mr Robinson after setting up CCTV cameras in the area.
