A man has been fined £600 for dropping a cigarette butt.

Sirous Baziyar, of Loxford Road, Barking, was ordered to cough up after he was caught dropping the fag end in Dagenham.

Council enforcement officers spotted the 43-year-old commit the grime crime outside a furniture shop in Green Lane in April this year.

Cllr Margaret Mullane, Barking and Dagenham Council’s enforcement chief, said: “This fine demonstrates our commitment to cleaning up the borough.

“If you choose to treat our streets as your dustbin, then you should watch out – we will catch you and hit you with the full weight of the law.”

Baziyar was originally cautioned and fined £75 but he refused to pay even though the council contacted him three times.

He appeared at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on November 21 where he was found guilty and ordered to pay £600 by December 5.

The fine included a £220 fine, victim surcharge of £30 and costs of £350.
