A FURTHER 14 prosecutions have been brought against people for not paying their littering fine.
The hearings at Basildon Magistrates Court on 3 July saw the 14 people found guilty given a criminal record and ordered to pay a much larger fine.
As part of the Thurrock Council’s clean it, cut it, fill it initiative, enforcement officers have been deployed across the borough to tackle littering and help ensure the borough is clean for residents to enjoy.
Leader of the Council, Cllr Rob Gledhill, said: “These prosecutions build on the work we have already done prosecuting 21 people in May and June.
“Residents want us to take action against those spoiling the borough, which is why we have also increased the cost of the value to maximum permissible by law.
“Litter louts have a choice – put your litter in a bin or risk a fine, a day in court and a criminal record.”
