A FENLAND company was accused today of a "flagrant breach" of its planning consent as legal action was being considered against it.
PG Packaging of March Road, Coates, was accused by Fenland District Council of not enforcing strict rules regarding movements to and from the site during the night.
Council officers revealed they had spent three nights between 10pm and 4am monitoring the site to prove violation of planning conditions.
"The owner has been asked to curtail the out of hour's activities and he said he would 'do his best'" said Bill Tilley, planning compliance officer.

Mr Tilley said: "We, the council, need to take firm and decisive action regarding this flagrant breach of operating hours."
