Four people have been fined for urinating on the streets of Selby.
They've been prosecuted for anti-social behaviour under a new bye-law that come in to force.
Those found guilty are:
- Daniel Burt, (28), of The Laurels, Barlby, Selby, found guilty and fined £130, ordered to pay costs of £140 and victim surcharge of £15.

- Scott Sweeting, (19) of Westbourne Road, Selby, found guilty and fined £60, ordered to pay £140 costs and £15 victim surcharge.
These offences took place in Selby Town Centre in July and August earlier this year.
Another 12 prosecutions by the Council are due before the court in November.
Selby District Council introduced the bye-law that can punish anyone found urinating in Selby's streets with a fine of up to £500 in March earlier this year.
These offences were contrary to the Byelaws for Good Rule and Government Act 1972 for the prevention and suppression of nuisances.
These prosecutions demonstrate Selby District Council's commitment to tackling anti-social behaviour and keeping our district clean.
This supports two of the Council's key long-term aims which are to keep communities safe and to protect the local environment.
