Professional boxer caught on CCTV camera dumping huge bag of rubbish in middle of street

A professional boxer has found himself on the ropes after being caught on camera flytipping .

Ajmal “AJ” Faizy is ranked 16th in the UK after fleeing from his homeland of Afghanistan where the Taliban killed his father.

But he was on the end of a technical knockout when caught on film by Salford Council dumping a bag of rubbish in a back street.

He had driven 24 miles from his home in Darwen to ditch the rubbish in Cambridge Street, Lower Broughton.

When questioned, he claimed he dumped the rubbish when he came to Manchester for an interview because he couldn’t fit the bag into his bin at home, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Faizy, now from Blackburn, pleaded guilty to one offence of illegally dumping waste on Sunday, May 15 last year.

He was fined £150 with £250 costs and £30 victim surcharge at Manchester and Salford Magistrates.

The court heard that Salford Council’s CCTV team recorded Faizy driving his car into the street and dumping the bag in the afternoon.

When interviewed by council officers Mr Faizy said he had found three bin bags of rubbish dumped outside his house.

He filled his bin with two of the bags and with five days before the next rubbish collection, put the last one in his car intending to find a ‘skip yard’ in Manchester.

He drove to Manchester for a job interview and asked people in Cheetham Hill and on Bury New Road where to dump the waste.

He failed to find the tip but saw other waste on the industrial estate so thought the rubbish was placed there to be collected, and left the bag.

In court he said that what he had done was “horrible and not acceptable.”

Speaking after the court case, Ben Dolan, Strategic Director for Environment and Community Safety, said: “Mr Faizy could have found the tip close to his home, or found a bin to put this bag into.

“There was no reason and no excuse for him to dump it in the middle of an industrial estate in Salford and waste public money cleaning it up.”

The prosecution was brought as part of Operation Pandora, Salford City Council’s crackdown on flytippers which has seen 45 offenders prosecuted for 56 offences with fines, compensation and costs now topping £48,000.
