Dover District Council prosecutes seven more people for littering with cigarette butts

Seven more people have been prosecuted for dropping their fag butts as litter.

It is part of Dover District Council’s continuing war on the nuisance, having brought six others to court last month.

All offenders were prosecuted for littering when they failed to pay fixed penalty notices after being caught by council officers.
