Woman guilty of littering in Hinckley

Published Friday, 11 January 2019

A NUNEATON woman, Nikki Birdi, has been fined £440 by Leicester Magistrates Court on Wednesday 9 January 2019 after being found guilty of littering in Hinckley.

In addition to the fine, she was ordered to pay costs of £378.04 and a victim surcharge of £44.

The court was told that a Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council Enforcement Officer issued a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) to Birdi of Alexandra Street, who was witnessed throwing a cigarette end onto the floor within ASDA car park in Hinckley on 13 July 2018.

The FPN was not paid and a further two reminder letters were sent to Ms Birdi. As the FPN remained unpaid, the council prosecuted Birdi for the littering offence. Ms. Birdi did not attend the court hearing.

Executive Member for Neighbourhood Services at the Borough Council Councilolr Mark Nickerson said: “Our officers work hard to reduce the incidence of environmental crime and improve the cleanliness of neighbourhoods and this case should highlight to offenders that we will take action in such cases whether it be on private or public land.”
