Fly-tippers jailed for dumping asbestos near dance school

Two serial fly-tippers who were caught on video dumping illegal waste, including asbestos, near a children's school have been jailed.

George Parry, 55, and David Smith, 53, dumped tonnes of builder's waste outside the dance school in Liverpool.

The pair, both of Aspes Road, West Derby, pleaded guilty to four counts of fly-tipping at Liverpool Magistrates' Court.

Liverpool City Council said fly-tipping costs them more than £1m a year.
