A husband and wife have been sent for trial at crown court acccused of waste offences of £1m-plus.

John and Elaine Park, of Park Hall Farm, Fleetwood Road, Pilling, face two charges brought under Environment Act legislation.

Park, 53, and his wife, 44, run the Frank Smith skip hire business based on Bracewell Avenue, Poulton.

David Bradley, for the Environment Agency, told Blackpool magistrates that the couple were alleged to have no waste management plan and had stored vast quantities of waste material out of doors when they were not allowed to do so.

He said: “The cost of these offences will go well into millions of pounds.”

The couple were both sent for trial at Preston Crown Court and were bailed to appear at the higher court on January 14.
