A scrap dealer has been found guilty of operating an illegal waste site in County Armagh, Northern Ireland.
Patrick Carvill, from Middletown, has been given a suspended sentence for running a waste scrap yard without a waste management licence.
Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers found piles of scrap metal and crushed end of life vehicles when they visited the scrap site on five occasions between August 2010 and June 2012.
Carvill pleaded guilty to four charges of keeping waste on site without a licence under The Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997.
He received two conditional discharges as well as a two week custodial sentence and a custodial sentence for four weeks. All are suspended for 12 months and will run concurrently.
