THURROCK Council continues to issue Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) for littering in the borough. Litter offenders who spoil the borough and don’t pay their fine will face a criminal record.
A spokesperson for Thurrock Council said:
“The message is getting out there, it is not acceptable to litter our streets. The appearance of the borough has improved and enforcement officers will continue to patrol Thurrock.
“The FPNs are issued for littering offences. There really is no excuse for spoiling our borough and those fined who choose to not pay will face prosecution. Anyone who is caught littering our streets will be fined wherever they live.”
