A man must pay £360 after blocking a drain with cement.
Peter Loveday, of Eastcourt Lane, washed out a cement mixer and emptied the contents into a drain in Gillingham Road on November 8, last year. No water could pass down the gully as a result.
"His actions could have resulted in flooding as it was around November time when we were experiencing very bad weather.
"This is unacceptable behaviour and anyone caught disposing of controlled waste in this way will be prosecuted.
“The council spends £166,000 a year cleaning highway drains and incidents like this add to this large sum.”
