A MAN from Hull has been fined £100 for dropping litter in Dewsbury.

Mike Erno, of Spring Bank, was no more than two metres from a litter bin when he was seen dropping a wrapper in Foundry Street on August 31.

He did not pay a £75 fixed penalty notice so he was prosecuted by Kirklees Council using environmental legislation.

Kirklees magistrates found him guilty in his absence last Thursday and fined him £100 with £15 victim surcharge and £175 costs.
