Littering

Three Strikes!

Mrs Helen Ansell of Henley Road, Bedford was ordered to pay nearly £400 after pleading guilty to her third littering offence in Bedford Borough.

 

Mrs Ansell was issued fines for littering in Bedford twice last year, and when she was spotted dropping a cigarette butt out of a vehicle on Rope Walk, Bedford on 4th April 2017 the matter was referred to the Courts. She entered an early guilty plea and was ordered to pay a total of £395.22, including a fine of £120, costs and a victim surcharge.

 

Cllr Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for the Environment said “We take littering extremely seriously, and as this was Mrs Ansell’s third offence it was sent to the Magistrates Court to be addressed. We have a zero tolerance approach to littering in Bedford Borough and if being issued with a fine does not deter people from committing this offence, we are not afraid to take further steps.”
