Kym Marsh faces court as Corrie scripts found dumped

Kym Marsh, who plays Coronation Street’s Michelle Connor, will have to appear in court charged with fly-tipping after her Corrie scripts were found in bags of dumped rubbish.

The Manchester Evening News reports that Kym will face prosecution under environmental health laws fter Salford Council officials launched an investigation after a pile of rubbish was abandoned by a roadside. It included building rubble and pieces of furniture – plus some old Coronation Street scripts which they traced back to Kym Marsh.

Kym denies dumping the items, claiming she fell victim to a conman who offered to dispose of the rubbish from her home during renovation work. She was said to be ‘horrified’ to learn of the prosecution. She claims that a man dressed in a yellow high-visibility jacket knocked on her door and offered to remove the rubbish – so she paid him £60 and forgot all about it.

 A spokeswoman said: “Kym paid someone in good faith to remove the rubbish which had accumulated as a result of work on the house. She didn’t think any more of 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 court summons.”

The spokeswoman added: “Kym would like to use the opportunity to warn others to be careful about paying other people to remove rubbish. She was just keen to get rid of it. Kym would never have given it to somebody if she thought that was going to happen. She is horrified that the rubbish was dumped and very angry.”

Kym will appear at Manchester magistrates court later this month charged with failing to secure transfer of waste. If found guilty she could face a fine. Salford council declined to comment.
