Is Canterbury's illegal tyre dumper an environmental menace?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

He has created illegal rubbish and tyre dumps around Canterbury.

Now he is filling a warehouse in central Christchurch with used tyres and is behind on his rent.

A community leader calls him an environmental menace and says he must be stopped. Others are concerned he will walk away from his latest tyre dump.

But Michael Benny Le Roy, 59, a double bankrupt, says he is "trying to save the planet" and has "a good name in the tyre game".
