Litterbugs hit in the pocket

TWO Llandeilo litterbugs have each been fined £75 after they were caught dropping litter.
Council environmental enforcement officers patrolling the town spotted the pair during separate incidents and issued each with a fixed penalty notice.
In the first incident a man was seen throwing a till receipt onto the ground.
The second fine was imposed on a man who left a plastic bottle and drinks can on a windowsill.
Executive Board Member for Environmental and Public Protection Councillor Jim Jones said: “Our enforcement officers carry out patrols all over the county.
“Keeping the streets free of litter is a top priority for the council and anyone caught dropping rubbish will be fined.”
The maximum fine for dropping litter if prosecuted in court is £2,500.
