Litter droppers should be fined
Sir – Thanks to Sidmouth Youth Council and PCSO Blanchford-Cox, the Woolbrook area of Sidmouth was blitzed of litter on Friday, April 18. This area is now immaculate. Wonderful – or is it?

This area is now immaculate. Wonderful - or is it? The children/youths who did all the clearing are (almost certainly) the very same who caused the problem in the first place, especially those of school age.
Worse, they were rewarded, apparently, with a free barbecue meal and perhaps more.
This tells the children/youths that, if they create litter problems, they will, in due course, be rewarded (handsomely) for picking it up.

Are the authorities mental or what? Litter dropping is an offence, punishable by a hefty fine, as is vandalism, not something to be rewarded.
