Cheshire East gets tough on litter louts

Cheshire East Council has successfully prosecuted nine people for litter offences in the last week with fines and costs imposed totalling more than £3,500.

The prosecutions were the first to be taken to court since the council started a crackdown in September, which followed the launch of the Crewe neighbourhood action plan – a pilot project to tackle the issues of littering, fly-tipping and dog fouling in the town.

Eight defendants failed to respond to the summons and were convicted in absence. Each was fined £220, ordered to pay costs and a £30 victim surcharge.

One defendant pleaded guilty by letter and was fined £120, ordered to pay costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
