It's easy to get caught out when your rubbish mounts up - and Coronation Street star Kym Marsh might be the latest person to fall foul of strict fly tipping laws.
Kym will appear in court after her Coronation Street scripts were found dumped on a roadside near her home in Salford, Manchester, where she lives with fiance Jamie Lomas.
According to Kym, she paid 60 pounds to a man offering a door to door rubbish removal service. Kym believes she is the victim of a scam.Her spokesperson told the Manchester Evening News: "Kym paid someone in good faith to remove the rubbish which had accumulated as a result of work at the house.
"She didn't think any more about it until she heard from Salford council, who wanted to speak to her about rubbish dumped on the roadside.
"She immediately went straight to the council and explained what had happened, and was told that if she didn't hear anything within six weeks that would be the end of it.
"This is the first she knew about the summons."
Kym is set to appear before Manchester magistrates later this month.
