Attack of the nappies starts again in Southport

SOUTHPORT is again being affected by an attack of the nappies... Over the last few weeks we have had lots of reports about fly tipping, mostly around dirty nappies being dropped in and around Southport's Town Centre.

We don't like to normally report on these types of issues, but we have decided to highlight it this time as the situation is getting worse.The latest issue was reported to have happened on Stanley Street, where a solid old mattress and quite a few dirty nappies had been dumped. We popped over and found the offending items where children and people walk. We then informed Sefton Council who have dealt with this latest issue. If you spot anyone fly tipping please report it to the your local Council. The the illegal dumping of waste or rubbish, even littering can result in a very large fine and in some cases is classed as a serious criminal offence. The items dropped like this pose a health hazard and also make the area unpleasant for both tourists and locals.

Within England you can report it by calling:- 0345 1400845 and those caught will be find ₤400 with the possibility of more action being taken! Within Sefton the current fixed penalty for littering and dog fouling within Sefton is ₤75.00, to be paid within 14 days, but reduced to ₤50.00 if paid within 10 days. The maximum fine is ₤2500. The current fixed penalty for fly tipping is ₤400, to be paid within 14 days, reduced to ₤240 if paid within 10 days. The maximum fine is ₤50,000 or 12 months imprisonment if convicted in a Magistrates Court. The offence can also attract an unlimited fine and up to 5 years imprisonment if convicted in a Crown Court.

More information about litter and fly tipping issues within Sefton can be found on Sefton Council's website. For those in the Liverpool City Council area, you can report fly-tipping online. Wirral Council also an online advice and reporting page.

What to do if you see someone fly tipping:-

► Take vehicle registration details, but only if it doesn't put you in harms way!

► Note the time and location.

► Take a description of what waste you have seen being dumped, if you can take photo.

► Take a description of the people dumping the waste.

► Don't approach anyone who you see fly tipping.
