Please don't litter - these did and it's cost them £500

More fixed penalty fine dodgers have been before the court and, for not paying their initial £75, most now have to pay £500.

The majority were fined £220, ordered to pay costs of £250 plus a £30 surcharge.

All were dealt with in their absence by Lincoln Magistrates.

Cllr David Brown, Boston Borough Council's portfolio holder for waste services, said: "This is the second batch of people who have littered the streets and have found, to their extreme cost, that they haven't got away with it. They could not have littered, or spat in the street, but they did and were caught doing it. They could have paid a £75 fixed penalty, but they didn't. Perhaps they thought, wrongly, that it wouldn't be pursued. Now, because we have had to hand this matter on to the courts it has cost many of them £500 and they now have a record. If more litter and fail to pay they will also end up before the courts.

"The council does not receive any of this money from the courts - this is not about making money; this is about making people less likely to litter so we can keep the town looking clean and tidy."
