‘DO NOT litter in East Lindsey’, that is the message from East Lindsey District Council after another successful prosecution.
Officers from East Lindsey District Council issued a £75 Fixed Penalty Notice to Dean Eyre of Carlton Road, Manby, after he was seen throwing a cigarette end from his car window whilst travelling along the B1200.
Eyre, who chose not to pay the fixed penalty, pleaded not guilty to the offence, which was heard before Skegness Magistrates Court on September 19, 2012.
Although Eyre chose not to attend court, the case was heard in his absence and he was found guilty.
The magistrate issued a £75 fine and ordered Eyre to pay £200 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
Portfolio Holder for the Environment at the District Council, Councillor Tony Bridges, said: “Littering is totally unacceptable and this prosecution should be a warning to other litterers.
“The district council is working hard to catch those people who discard their waste irresponsibility and in doing so cost council taxpayers a considerable amount of money each year.”
