Six fined for littering with cigarettes ends in places such as Effingham Street, Dover

By Sam Lennon

Having a fag cost six people £400 each when they dropped the cigarette ends as litter.

Dover District Council brought the prosecutions and each offender was fined £220 and made to pay a £30 victim surcharge and costs of £150.

Each was caught in the act by a council officer who approached them and issued a fixed penalty notice.

All the hearings were on Tuesday and all six Dover people were found guilty in their absence of dropping litter.

Matthew Pope, 27, of Clarendon Place, dropped his litter in the area of Edwards Road in the town centre on April 21.

Shaun Breeden, 32, of Glenfield Road, and Richard Blakeman, 57, of Folkestone Road, both littered the area of Effingham Street that same day.
