Blackburn man did not have licence for scrap metal

A MAN has been fined after being found carrying controlled materials without a waste carriers licence.

South Ribble magistrates convicted Owen Collins, of Audley Close, Blackburn in his absence.

Collins, 22, was fined £400, with £75 costs and £15 victim surcharge.

He was carrying scrap metal in his vehicle to Corncroft, Penwortham, near Preston, when he was stopped by a PCSO officer last July, the South Ribble Magistrates heard.

None of these people have a waste carriers licence. Why don't the police nail them on this?
