Litter: it's a crime

Littering is illegal, anti-social and creates an unpleasant environment for everyone. It can be dangerous to animals and can encourage pests such as rats. Those who leave litter can be fined or face prosecution. This applies to individuals who drop litter in the street and to businesses or landowners who allow their premises to be defaced by rubbish.
