Clayton-le-Moors pair pay the penalty for rubbish

First published in Clayton-le-Moors

BACK yards filled with mounds of rubbish saw two residents landed with fines and costs of over £500 each.

Jessica Heap, 20 of Albert Street, Clayton-le-Moors, ignored a notice to clean up her back yard which was full of general household rubbish, nappies and dog faeces.

She didn’t attend court and was ordered by magistrates to pay over £580 in fines and costs including those for the council to clear the rubbish.

Lee Moores, of Victor Street, also Clayton-le-Moors, did appear in court and was also fined over £580 for ignoring a notice to clear up her back yard in the town, which was full of black refuse bags.

Hyndburn’s deputy leader Clare Pritchard said: “This is yet another example of our tough stance on this type of anti social behaviour.

"We won’t put up with it; it’s both unsightly and costly as our own staff have to clear up the mess.”
