EE has been hit with an £840 fine by Camden Council, for fly tipping 25 bags of rubbish on Camden High Street, outside a rival phone shop.

On March 29 last year, council officers found the bags of rubbish outside Carphone Warehouse.

After looking at the bags, they found they belonged to Camden Town’s EE Shop, less than 100 yards away.

They issued an on-the-spot fine to the store, which they failed to pay.

The authority had already written to the shop, reminding them how to properly dispose of rubbish in December 2016.

At Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on July 5, the company was fined £400, a victim surcharge of £40, and ordered to pay £400 costs.

Councillor Adam Harrison, cabinet member for mproving Camden’s environment, said: “As a major, BT-owned, company, EE should really know better than to fly-tip our streets.

“This ruling sends a clear message - it doesn’t matter whether you’re a multinational business, we do not tolerate illegal fly-tipping in Camden and we will catch up with you if you don’t help us take care of the borough.”
