MP: ‘Garrote’ offenders with intestines to cut fly tipping

Desmond Swayne has suggested drastic action to cut the number of fly tipping cases.

The Conservative MP for New Forest West intervened in a Commons debate, saying the current penalties were insufficient, but if “offenders were garrotted with their own intestines” then numbers would fall.

Defra minister Robbie Moore appeared not to take up the suggestion, but said councils had been given powers to impose higher fines to “drive down fly tipping in all council areas”.
