A Chesterfield skip hire and scrap metal firm has been fined £16,000 for illegally disposing of waste by burning.

Richard Fletcher (Metals) Ltd, based at Newbridge Lane, Old Whittington, was sentenced by Chesterfield magistrates’ court this month following an Environment Agency investigation.

It was on Bonfire Night last year that the firefighters were called to a large fire on the company premises.
