AN IPSWICH man was rumbled by CCTV after he chucked household rubbish into his next-door-neighbour's garden.

Stephen Aldred, of Harrow Close, Ipswich, appeared before South East Suffolk Magistrates where he was initially charged with harassing neighbour Gina Goodrich.

The charged was dropped and instead Aldred agreed to keep the peace against Mrs Goodrich and her husband for six months or forfeit £100.

Prosecutor Gareth Davies, told magistrates Aldred "accepted on occasions he deposited rubbish in her garden."

He told the court Aldred, 36, was moving house to live "on the other side of Ipswich" so the chances of re-occuring were "minimal."

Graham Skippen, for Aldred, said he was caught on CCTV and threw items such as a T-bag and empty plastic bag.

No one was in the garden at the time.

Mr Skippen said: "The neighbour occasionally remonstrates with him and this has sort of built up."

The court heard Aldred had written to his neighbour to apologise for his actions.
