Kym gets in trouble after rubblish removal incident

Kym Marsh has accepted a caution for fly-tipping after bin bags containing her Coronation Street scripts were found dumped at the side of a road.

The actress was due to appear at Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, charged with failing to have a duty of care for disposal of rubbish, but the charge was dropped when Kym agreed to pay the costs of Salford Council‘s clear-up and investigation.

‘In light of new evidence and information the city council has reviewed this case following detailed representations made by the defendant,’ said Paul Scott, prosecuting the case on behalf of the council.

‘After careful consideration it is believed it would not be in the public interest to continue with the prosecution.’

Kym, 36, was fooled by a man in a high-visibility jacket who offered to remove the rubbish – which she’d built up from renovating her home – for £60.

She’s now hoping to put the incident behind her to concentrate on planning her September wedding to former Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas.

Kym‘s relieved the prosecution has been withdrawn and she’s now able to draw a line under this matter,’ says a spokesman.

Kym paid someone in good faith to remove the rubbish but realises now she should have asked to see a licence.’
