Jailed owners of skip hire business banned indefinitely from transport operations

court gavel

The owners of Porthmadog Skip Hire have been banned from running heavy goods vehicles indefinitely by the country’s Traffic Commissioner.

Nick Jones held a public inquiry into two operator licences using the trading name of Porthmadog Skip Hire, following the conviction of Joseph Gaffey, Patricia Gaffey and Michael Gaffey for illegally storing waste.

The industry regulator said the circumstances which led to the convictions affected their repute as licence holders.

A request was made to surrender the licences but Jones rejected this on the basis that formal action needed to be taken.

    Re the article "Jailed owners of skip hire business banned indefinitely from transport operations" on 08/08/2017it would be useful if we could get more information in regards to reported events i.e. "Circumstances which led to the convictions affected their repute as license holders", doesn't tell us much or enable us to learn from these types of reports.
