Pair fined for dropping wrappers
A LLANELLI man and woman have been fined for dropping litter.
James David Anthony Jones, aged 26, of New Dock Road, and Hazel Louise Williams, aged 23, of Ynys Las, Llwynhendy, both pleaded guilty at Carmarthen Magistrates Court to offences under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The court heard Carmarthenshire Council enforcement officers were on patrol in the Old Lodge area of Llanelli on February this year when they saw a man and woman walking along, both eating sandwiches that were in brown paper wrappers, which they discarded.
Williams was issued with a fixed penalty notice but failed to pay and Jones refused to provide his details to the officers.
Both were prosecuted in court as a result. They were each fined £40 and ordered to pay £75 towards prosecution costs plus a £20 victim surcharge.
