More than 30 street litter louts and spitters in Boston have been named and shamed by the Council

And they have all ended up with £500 bills through the court after not paying the initial fixed penalty notice of £75 issued by Boston Borough Council.

The councillor responsible for waste services in the borough says this clearly shows that the Council will not simply ignore those who commit such offences.

And if they refuse to pay the fixed penalty, they will face a much bigger bill, stressed Cllr David Brown, portfolio holder for waste services.

"This is the second batch of people who have littered the streets and have found, to their extreme cost, that they haven't got away with it," he said.

"They could have not littered or spat in the street, but they did and were caught doing it.

"They could have paid a £75 fixed penalty, but they didn't. Perhaps they thought, wrongly, that it wouldn't be pursued.

"Now, because we have had to hand this matter on to the courts it has cost many of them £500 and they now have a record. If more litter and fail to pay they will also end up before the courts.

"The council does not receive any of this money from the courts - this is not about making money; this is about making people less likely to litter so we can keep the town looking clean and tidy."
