Pensioner Fined For ‘Littering’ Crumbs

A pensioner claims he was fined £50 for littering after dropping crumbs from a pork pie he was eating.

Peter Vipham was eating the snack in Manchester city centre when a small crumb of pastry fell to the floor and he flicked another off his coat.

Mr Vipham, 75, then says he was suddenly approached by two women who identified themselves as enforcement officers and told him he had been filmed littering.

He said he offered to pick up the crumbs but said he wasn’t given the opportunity to view the video footage, despite asking.

Peter is refusing to pay the fine and is seeking legal advice.
