A prolific fly dumper was caught in the act – by a Ministry of Defense (MOD) helicopter.

The plane had been flying over Melksham, Wiltshire, when the pilot spotted something fishy below.

Corey Ross Carr was seen disposing of rubbish and burning mattresses.

He had run a waste disposal service on Facebook – and claimed it had been “fully audited by the Environment Agency”.

He had previously been prosecuted by Wiltshire Council for breaching environmental and trading standards.

But footage of the helicopter flying by on November 17 proved to be his downfall.

Carr, from Melksham in Wiltshire, appeared before Swindon Magistrates’ Court on June 6.

He pleaded guilty to four environmental offenses and one breach of trading standards.

Carr was given a 12-month community order, a fine of £1,295 including costs and must attend 12 mental health sessions with 10 rehabilitation sessions.

Mark McClelland, Wiltshire Council’s cabinet member for waste, said: “We have a very clear message – we will not tolerate fly-tipping.

“We will continue to prosecute anyone who believes they can flout the rules and corrupt our communities and the environment.

“We would like to thank the MOD helicopter pilots, the Environment Agency, Wiltshire Police and all the witnesses who helped with this prosecution.

“We are now making urgent representations to the Environment Agency to ask them to revoke Mr Carr’s license as a refuse trucker.”

Carr had been accused of failing to comply with his waste due diligence obligations, dumping controlled waste on approved land and disposing of waste “in a manner likely to cause pollution” by incinerating the mattress.

Carr was also accused of operating an unregulated waste disposal facility on property off Woodrow Road in Melksham.

The rubbish had been dumped on land owned by the Wilts and Berks Canal Trust.

The waste had been traced to a householder in Melksham by Environmental Enforcement Officers.

Authorities were then able to show that Carr had been paid to clean up the trash but had not disposed of it lawfully.

Mr Carr’s co-defendant, Neill Ludlow of Woodrow Road, Melksham, had pleaded guilty at a previous hearing to knowingly allowing the dumped waste to enter a property adjacent to his property.

He had refused to allow Mr Carr to dispose of rubbish and had denied any knowledge that Mr Carr had burned a mattress.

Mr Ludlow was given an 18-month parole and was awarded costs of £1,200 plus a supplement of £22, payable within 28 days.
