Man fined for throwing litter from car near Quainton


A man has been fined for dumping rubbish in a Vale country lane.

Daniel Allen admitted throwing a shopping bag of litter out of his car as he drove along Carters Lane, near Quainton.

Officials were called on October 29 last year following reports of dumping and after examining the rubbish traced it to the 24 year old.

Allen, from Buckingham, pleaded guilty at Aylesbury Magistrates’ Court on May 8.

He said he put the rubbish in the bag while in his car and threw it out as he drove home. He could not account for why he had done so but expressed regret for his actions.

Allen was fined £285 by the court and ordered to pay costs of £500. A victim surcharge of £28 was also levied.
