Fly tip in Ceredigion - and get away with it!

The Western Mail ran this story about fly tipping in Wales. The relevant Ceredigion statistics are 1204 instances of fly tipping between April 2006 and December 2008 and no prosecutions. If you assume from the Wales statistics of 157,178 instances and 1051 prosecutions then you would expect at least 8 prosecutions in Ceredigion.
Fly tipping is illegal, dangerous and an environmental eyesore. Ceredigion have an on line service to report problems and if residents take time to report then time should be taken to act on the information. How many enforcement officers are there in Ceredigion dealing with fly tipping? I suspect not many. Its time for fly tippers to be prosecuted not let off the hook.

I ended up reporting a burned out car in Goginan as a result of this link.

I am quite liberal (small l) in most areas of sentencing, but fly tipping should carry a mandatory capital sentence.
