A man who ran one of the biggest illegal waste dumps ever found in north Wales has hidden assets possibly running to millions of pounds.

William O'Grady was convicted of running a cowboy waste operation more than a year ago.

At Mold Crown Court a judge ruled his crimes netted more than £8m, but only a fraction of that was recoverable.

Roger Pinney reports.
