A woman from Fairlop has been ordered to pay £1,000 after someone driving her car disposed of a cigarette in Dagenham.
Kellie Lisa Himpfen, of Tudor Crescent, failed to provide details of the driver of her car who disposed of the ciggie in Whalebone Lane South.
Barking and Dagenham Council enforcement officers spotted a female in a silver Mercedes throw it on the road on November 25, 2019.
Margaret Mullane, cabinet member for enforcement and community safety at the council, said: "Whether it is fly tipping, littering or dropping a cigarette on the floor, we won’t stand for it."
Miss Himpfen was given 21 days to identify the driver after being issued a notice on December 2, 2019. After not responding, she was sent a final reminder in January 2020.
