People have been fined for dropping cigarettes in the city

A total of 39 people were fined at court for dropping litter - mainly cigarettes - in the city at a hearing at Peterborough Magistrates' Court this week.

The offences all took place last year in Long Causeway, Bridge Street and other areas of the city centre.

The fines come after a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) was introduced in the city in April last year.

Since it was introduced, dozens of people have been fined for various offences.

The PSPO bans people in the city centre from urinating or defecating in the street, begging, cycling in Bridge Street, littering and spitting.People caught breaching the orders are given a fixed penalty notice - but if that goes unpaid, court action is taken.

On Tuesday, 36 people were fined £220 and ordered to pay costs of £180 and a victim surcharge after they did not turn up at court, or enter guilty pleas by post. Magistrates found them guilty in their absence.
