'My 18 year old was fined on his way home from school on the common for dropping a receipt. The ‘stalker Environmental Officer’ jumped out and had obviously been following and waiting for something to happen! The fine was £150 – totally disproportionate to the ‘crime’. It’s outrageous that Wandsworth Council had introduced these fines – just a money making operation as far as I am concerned. Please warn people. Obviously littering is wrong but a £25 fine would be about right!!!'
