"One of the biggest waste-management companies in the South-East has been given a record fine over illegal treatment of hazardous material including asbestos at its huge Willesden [Old Oak Common] depot.

"Powerday, run by London Irish rugby club co-owner Mick Crossan, disposes of waste for major clients including Barratt Homes, Berkeley Homes and Carillion.

"The firm was ordered to pay more than £1.2 million at ­Harrow Crown Court for offences related to two separate cases which, ­combined, saw more than 17,000 tonnes of waste deposited and stored ­illegally. The record fine came under tough new sentencing guidelines for environmental crimes."
