Telford man and woman fined for litter and dog fouling
A woman who allowed her dog to foul a path and a man who threw a can out of a car window have both been fined more than £700 by Telford magistrates.
Celia Joy Barry, of Manor Road, Arleston, must pay £755 for failing to remove dog faeces on 29 January in Apley Castle.
Michael Smith, 19, of Old Vicarage Road, Little Dawley, faces costs of £715 for depositing litter in Kemberton Road, Madeley, on 24 February.
Both cases were proved in absence.
Failed to respond
A spokesman for Telford and Wrekin Council said Barry was reported to its environmental enforcement team after she was spotted making no effort to clean up her dog's mess.
He said a fixed penalty notice for £50 was issued but Barry failed to respond despite repeated reminders.
In Smith's case the spokesman said a Police Community Support Officer was on patrol in the Madeley area of Telford in an unmarked vehicle on the day the offence took place.
He saw the front passenger of a silver Citroen Saxo throw a blue and white can from the window on to the grass verge along the side of Kemberton Road.
He followed the vehicle until it came to a stop in the car park of the Stirchley Medical Centre and a fixed penalty notice was issued to the front seat passenger.
Smith failed to respond to the fixed penalty and subsequent reminders and the case was brought before Telford Magistrates.
