Litter fine limit to increase

The Government has confirmed that the maximum on-the-spot fine councils can impose for dropping litter in England will almost double from £80 to £150 from April.

The minimum fine will increase from £50 to £65, while the default fine will increase from £75 to £100.

Car owners will also be automatically fined if anyone throws litter from their vehicle, bringing the rest of the country in line with powers already used in London.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said: "Government guidance will be issued around the turn of the year to ensure the new powers are used in a fair and proportionate way by local authorities."
