A CIGARETTE thrown on the ground by a Stafford woman has cost her more than £550.
Stafford magistrates were told Katie Wilson was given a fixed penalty when she discarded the cigarette butt in the town’s Gaolgate Street.
But when she didn’t pay the £75 fine she was summoned to appear at court.
Wilson, 19, of Silkmore Lane, Stafford did not appear before the magistrates and was found guilty in her absence of littering, in July.
Magistrates gave her a £200 fine and ordered her to pay £340 costs and a victim surcharge of £15.
