In an appeal against sentences of eight months' imprisonment for offences of knowingly causing controlled waste to be deposited without a licence, in view of the fact that the appellants' actions had resulted only in an unsightly display of old lorry tyres and had not had an adverse effect on the environment, the sentences would be regarded as wrong in principle and would be quashed. No other order was made in view of the fact that prison sentences had been served.
