A PROLIFIC flytipper has received the toughest sentence to date in Bolton for the offence ­— and even had to spend the weekend locked up in the cells ahead of her court appearance.

Livia Krskova was arrested to answer for numerous offences after repeatedly dumping rubbish in the street behind her home.

A mattress, a smashed up bed frame and a fridge-freezer were all found behind Krskova’s Woodfield Street home in August last year by council enforcement officers.

The discovery was made just 24 hours after she had failed to attend court charged with an earlier flytipping offence, Bolton Magistrates’ Court heard.

Krskova, 38, admitted leaving the items in the public street but once again failed to appear at a court hearing scheduled for the following month ­— and a warrant went out for her arrest.

Just three months later, the repeat offender was flytipping again. This time leaving a mass of 29 black bin bags bursting with waste in the exact same spot, only adding to her growing list of offences.

Krskova was caught on January 18, spending the weekend in the cells before the hearing on Monday morning.

The court ordered her to pay a £100 fine and £90 victim surcharge for each of the August and November offences.

She was also handed a 12-month community order which will see her complete 100 hours of unpaid work.

Bolton Council’s environment boss Cllr Anne Galloway said: “This is a particularly shocking case of an individual who has shown utter disregard for her neighbours and repeatedly failed to take responsibility for her own actions.

“Not only has she spent time in custody, but she will now spend 100 hours giving back to the community she has harmed.

“I welcome this tough sentence which I hope will serve as a deterrent."
