VIDEO: Hooligan’s arrest caught on CCTV

CCTV footage has been released showing a man emptying bags of litter on Boston’s Town Bridge before kicking shop windows.

The images have been released as part of a crackdown on litter louts by Boston Borough Council.

A spokesman said: “Operators on night shift followed the exploits of this hooligan through the town as he emptied bags of rubbish left out for collection the following morning.

“He ripped open the bags, kicked and scattered the contents over the town bridge and then used his mobile phone to take pictures.

“He was tracked by cameras as he kicked shop windows in Emery Lane and used his bare hands to throw rubbish from a litter bin into the air. Operators alerted police who were waiting for him in West Street.”

The man was handed fixed penalty notices and forced to pay two £75 fines - one for littering and another for being drunk and disorderly as a result of this incident, in August 2013.

Today’s Boston Standard newspaper features the first batch of CCTV stills of people that council bosses hope to catch in connection with suspected litter offences in Boston.
