Two men have been fined more than £600 in total, after being found guilty of littering offences in Lowestoft.
At two separate hearings at Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court at the end of January, Ashley Nolan and Tony Hart were both charged with littering following incidents in 2019.
Last May, Mr Nolan was seen throwing cigarette litter from his vehicle whilst pulled up on Belvedere Road, Lowestoft. East Suffolk Norse issued Mr Nolan with an £80 Fixed Penalty Notice which he failed to pay, despite being sent reminders.
Also in May last year, Mr Hart was seen throwing cigarette litter from his vehicle whilst waiting in traffic on Katwijk Way, Lowestoft. East Suffolk Norse issued Mr Hart with an £80 Fixed Penalty Notice; he denied littering and failed to pay the notice, despite being sent reminders.
Councillor James Mallinder, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for the Environment said: “Anyone seen littering, including dropping a cigarette butt, can be fined £80 via a Fixed Penalty Notice. As shown in these cases, failure to pay this notice can result in legal action and further costs. So, please always dispose of your litter, including cigarette litter, responsibly.”
