On The Spot Fine For Man Caught Short

police station 4Friday proved an expensive pub night out for a man caught urinating in the street after Police issued him with a £90 fixed penalty ticket.

Officers found him relieving himself against the back wall of the Chemist in the Bank just after midnight.

Police had been following a restorative justice approach, asking offenders to apologise and clean up with a mop and bucket.

But Sergeant Colin Taylor says they’ve given up on that approach because, “it’s disgusting” and “there’s no need for it.”

Colin says anyone else found peeing in public can expect to get an on-the-spot fine.

    Well done. Colin is right, it is disgusting and I don’t want to live in a smelly town!
