Two people have been fined a total of £290 following separate prosecutions after residents reported incidents of littering and a dog off a lead.

Lauren Gornall of Station Road, Bamber Bridge, was caught littering between June 13 and 17 this year. She left five bags of household waste in an alley way near her home.

She failed to pay the £80 Fixed Penalty Notice and was fined £100 by South Ribble Magistrates Court, £75 costs and a victim surcharge of £20.

Ben Hoque, of Newsome Street, Leyland, was prosecuted for allowing his dog to roam off a lead on Sandy Lane, Leyland, in May. He failed to pay the £75 Fixed Penalty Notice issued for the offence. The court fined him £100 and ordered him to pay £75 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

The council’s cabinet member for neighbourhoods Coun Peter Mullineaux, said: “The council takes a zero-tolerance approach to dog and littering offences in our bid to ensure South Ribble is a clean and safe place to live, work and visit.
