LETTER: Impose a fine on litterbugs

As spring arrives so do the letters about litter. Those in authority obviously hope that plant growth will hide a lot of the offensive stuff. Why is it in Britain we put such a low priority on living in a clean, decent environment, unlike Northern Europe and Scandinavia. Clearly the ‘scruffy’ British are never going to be educated in these matters.

The only solution would be a meaningful fine (like Singapore). One of your readers suggested using those guilty of anti-social behaviour to clean it up! Great idea, but their ‘rights’ and health and safety would take precedence – we are good at that!
