Late night nuisances in Selby
12:01am 26th November 2011
Seven more people have been prosecuted for urinating on the streets of Selby.
It because of a new by-law which came in to effect earlier this year to help the police deal with late night nuisances.
All of those charged will have to pay basic costs of £140, plus a victim surcharge of £15. On top of that, they also face varying fines.
Those who've been charged:
18 year old Emily Carey of 30 Beastfair, Snaith, was fined £35 for urinating on the paved area in Abbey Place.
19 year old Sophie Townsley of 5 The Mount, Selby was also guilty of urinating at the same place and fined £175.
Adam Stretton, 18 years old, of 5 Mill Lane, Ryther, was fined £30 for urinating in Roberts Street, Selby.
18 year old Matthew Stevens of 1 Lime Tree Close, Thorpe Willoughby, was also guilty of urinating in Roberts Street, Selby. He has to pay a fine of £55.
There was a £175 fine for 21 year old Stephen Wright of The Riverside Public House, Ousegate, Selby; guilty of urinating in the town's cholera graveyard area.
26 year old Liam Willis of 12 The Ruddings, Selby faces a £65 fine for urinating in Roberts Street, Selby.
Rebecca Ward, 27 years old from 43 Moorland Way, Sherburn in Elmet will pay a £175 fine, for urinating on the public footpath between Market Place and Mickelgate in Selby.
Leader of the Council, Cllr Mark Crane, said:
"We introduced this new bylaw in direct response to concerns of local residents and businesses about late night antisocial behaviour in Selby town centre.
"This is the second round of prosecutions we've brought over recent months, in partnership with the Police, and it shows that our tough talking is being match by tough action.
"Expect to face a fine and additional costs if you're caught. This is all about making sure people feel safe and secure in the town centre and helping businesses too."
