Is this Britain’s worst flytipper? Drone reveals scale of illegal dumping ground on beauty spot which cost taxpayers £43,000

Drone pictures show the horrific scale of a landowner’s rubbish-strewn tip at a beauty spot – which has left taxpayers with a bill of more than £40k following a 10-year battle.

Maidstone Council has spent significant sums and almost a decade pursuing Langley Beck over his 14-hectare plot which is part of the North Downs in Kent.

The authority started enforcement action in 2014 after it found the land littered with broken vehicles and waste.

Beck was previously described as having a ‘hoarding disorder’ in a parallel contempt of court case, for which he was given a suspended prison sentence.

He was due to be sentenced over his plot in Boxley Woods, to the north of Maidstone in Kent, on April 5 last year, after being convicted of breaching planning regulations.

Mr Stemp pointed out that as well as the land in dispute, Beck also owned 11 acres and a nearby cottage at Westfield Sole Farm in Harp Farm Road.

The sentencing hearing had already been postponed twice – once because of difficulties finding a courtroom, and once because Beck had failed to show up.

Beck told the judge, Mr Recorder Fowler, that it was his intention to take his case to the Court of Human Rights.

Beck said he had suffered ’21 years of persecution by those dirty, lying, sons of b*****s (the council)’ and he described the hearing as ‘an invitation to a neck-tie party’.

In a parallel case, in which Beck had appeared in the High Court for contempt of court, his defence had claimed that he was unfit to plead because he suffered from a ‘hoarding disorder’.

That was rejected at the High Court last April by Mr Justice Sweeting, and Beck was convicted of contempt of court for failing to comply with a previous order to clear up the land and he was given a four-month prison sentence suspended for two years.

Mr Recorder Fowler said he was prepared to give Beck five weeks to find legal representation.

He said: ‘I am aware that there are certain psychiatric issues that would make it undesirable for Mr Beck to speak on his own behalf.’
