Thank you. I thought that maybe the problem because it’s the most common type of question that we have with regard to fly tipping.
Whilst you may have been miles away or even in another country on the day this was found, that is not to say that it wasn’t deposited on a different day, days or weeks earlier.
What we don’t know of course is where this was found, how far from your house, and whether it was just a random piece of paper or cardboard which could (for example) have blown from somewhere.
When you say it’s nowhere where you live I don’t know whether you mean nowhere in the same town or nowhere tens or hundreds of miles away.
At present, it appears that they want to interview you under caution and you would be entitled to have a solicitor at that meeting. My suggestion would always be to attend an interview under caution to see what they have to say and to see what the circumstances are but don’t admit anything and don’t say anything other than to answer the questions. Please note that an interview under caution is not the same as a formal police Caution which is a different issue altogether.
At this stage, they may decide to prosecute you or not but they will have to prove, if they do go ahead with this, beyond all reasonable doubt that you dumped this.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
