Littering Offence

LITTER CRACKDOWN; OFFENCE LANDS WOMAN WITH £400 FINE

A case of littering was heard by Bedford Magistrates on Wednesday 4th September 2013.

 

Miss Britta Haynes of Salisbury, Wiltshire, failed to appear before Magistrates in connection to a littering offence which occurred on Harpur Street, Bedford on Wednesday 27th February 2013. The Magistrates fined Miss Haynes £200 and ordered her to pay £176 costs, along with a victim surcharge of £20.

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “This is an excellent result and demonstrates that the Council is serious about tackling and fining people who drop litter.

 

Littering is anti-social behaviour and blights the local environment for everyone. We are now prosecuting more offenders than ever before, and we will maintain a zero-tolerance approach towards the minority of people who believe it is acceptable to drop litter in the borough.”
