Jobsworths Are Alive and Well and Living in Hertfordshire

Copied from BBC News website:

When a 69-year-old with a weakened prostate parked in a layby to have a "discreet" wee, he ended up being handed an £88 fine for "littering". While many might consider urinating in public - however discreet - unpleasant or antisocial, is it actually littering? …
… An officer from District Enforcement, the firm contracted by Dacorum Borough Council to deal with what it calls "enviro-crimes", was said to have tapped on his window and told him he had been "caught littering".


Should we have every dog in the country prosecuted?
