A FLY TIPPER has been fined in the Ribble Valley after being tracked down by police for dumping rubbish earlier in the month.

The rubbish was originally left around Dunsop Bridge with officers pledging to find the culprit.

Now, the fly tipper has been found and issued with a fixed penalty ticket that was paid immediately.

A police spokesperson said: "This was through partnership work with Ribble Valley Environmental Health.

"Enquiries are still on going to trace other offenders and I will keep you updated."
