Three offenders must pay total of £2,700 for dropping litter

Three people were fined by Mansfield Magistrates for dropping litter after failing to pay Fixed Penalty Notices issued by Mansfield District Council.

Abbie Oakley, 34, of Main Street, Shirebrook, was summoned to appear for an offence of littering, contrary to Section 87 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, on 4 February 2016. She failed to attend and the case was proved in her absence. She was fined £440, was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £44 and costs totalling £259.42. 

Wang Jie, 34, of Barringer Road, Mansfield, was also summoned to court facing the same allegation of littering from 1 February 2016, but also failed to attend the court hearing.

The case was proved in his absence and magistrates fined him £660, ordered him to pay a victim surcharge of £66 and costs totalling £258.40. Both these offenders were issued with Fixed Penalty Notices during a clean-up campaign in Forest Town earlier this year.

Daniel Limer, 19, of Sanders Avenue, Mansfield, was summoned for the same offence for littering in Nottingham Road, Mansfield, on 24 February 2016. He failed to attend court and therefore the case against him was proved in his absence. He was fined £660, ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £66 and costs totalling 258.40.

Mansfield District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Public Protection, Mick Barton said: "I hope these court cases will send a clear message to people that as a council we mean business when we say we will not tolerate people dropping litter in Mansfield.

"These three offenders could have simply paid their Fixed Penalty Notice of £75 but instead they have chosen to ignore these notices and are now having to pay the full cost of that."
