Consett man fined for littering

by Owen Temple on December 4, 2012

A Consett man has been penalised for littering with a fine and court costs totalling £365.

The man was seen dropping a cigarette butt in the town centre by a neighbourhood warden from Durham County Council. He was later summonsed to appear at Consett Magistrates’ Court after failing to pay an £80 Fixed Penalty Notice.

The man arrived late for the hearing and was found guilty in his absence. He was fined £110 and ordered to pay court costs of £240 and a £15 victim surcharge.
