Exeter Magistrates Court has fined a Tiverton woman £80 after she threw away her cigarette and refused to pay a fixed penalty notice. The court also ordered her to pay £30 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

The woman was spotted throwing the cigarette on the ground in Tiverton town centre and was given the opportunity to pay a fixed penalty. She refused to do this and, in line with Mid Devon Council policy, the case was referred to court.

Councillor Ray Radford, Cabinet member for the Environment, said the Council was pleased the Court supported its fight against litter louts. 

"We will continue to take further action against offenders if necessary. The vast majority of the litter on our streets is smoking-related and, nationally, it costs council tax payers £885 million a year to keep the streets of England clean. This is why we take a zero-tolerance attitude towards littering in Mid Devon."
