Consett man fined for littering

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.

    Might have been better if he had been made to clean a few streets instead of being fined….

Owen Temple, who has been Consett North's Lib Dem Councillor since 2007, and Margaret Nealis are committed to working for local people in Consett, to make sure that their voice is heard at County Hall. As the county council takes a more and more centralised and "one-size-fits-all" approach, it is more important than ever for Consett to have campaigners who will stand up for this town.


Do you agree that a 3 hour time limit on the Albert Road Car Park is a good idea?
