AN irresponsible dog owner who did not pick up after her pooch has been  fined more than £500.

Jane Taylor, of Chester Close, Shotton, was prosecuted by Flintshire Council at Wrexham Magistrates Court for failure to remove dog mess.

She also failed to provide her details, causing the penalty to spiral.

The initial offence were committed at Field 33 in Shotton in February.

Taylor pleaded guilty to both offences and was fined a total of £542.60 at a hearing.

The bumper fine comes four months after news a Flint man who threw his cigarette butt onto the street faced a bill of more than £700 in fines and costs.

Flintshire Council bosses behind Operation Clean Up said the latest big financial penalty for a littering-type offence highlights its zero-tolerance stance on those committing the offences of littering, fly tipping and graffiti.

Culprits caught are issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £75, with ongoing patrols in Shotton and other areas across the county.

Cllr Kevin Jones, cabinet member for public protection, waste and recycling, said: “The ongoing campaign of Operation Clean-Up shows Flintshire Council is determined to clear up the county.

“There will be fines for people who commit these anti-social offences and if the fines are ignored people will be prosecuted.”
