Among these images is a man suspected of urinating in public (11605 L) at 12.39am on November 28 against a shop front in High Street.

And a tree along John Adams Way at Main Ridge West was said to be the preferred location for public urination by another (11387 V), at 8.27am on October 26.

Those thought to be litterers included a sweet wrapper dropped to the ground (11304 Q) at 3.55pm in Red Lion Street, a cigarette thrown to the ground (11542 G) near the Len Medlock Centre and a drinks can left on the footpath near Pump Square (C – 11139).

Video evidence of offences, to accompany the stills, is captured by Boston Borough Council’s CCTV system.

And each month the council asks for your help in identifying any of the people who the council’s environmental crime enforcement officers want to speak with in 
connection with these incidents.

All information received will be confidential and the identities of those who pass on information will never be revealed.

Those caught by the council’s 68 CCTV cameras deliberately dropping litter and urinating or defecating in public will be pursued and issued with a £75 fixed penalty notice or be taken to court. The campaign also extends to cover those who do not clean up after their dogs.

After January 31 this legislation will also apply to spitting.

If you can help identify any of these people please pass details to Boston Borough Council - phone 01205 314200 and ask for the environmental enforcement team; write to: Name and Shame, Environmental Enforcement Team, Boston Borough Council, Municipal Buildings, West Street, Boston, PE21 8QR or email
