Mum fined for dropping tissue

Mother of two slapped with £75 fine for littering


Kerri-Anne Hickin, 30, from West Bromwich has been fined a massive £75 after a tissue fell out of her pocket as she ran to catch a bus on the school run.


A warden from Sandwell council saw the tissue blow away in the wind, and began reciting littering bylaws to the mother of two.

Refusing to pay the fine, Kerri-Anne described the £75 as, “ridiculous, petty and insane” after the incident made her late to pick up her children from school.


It’s the second time Sandwell council has hit the headlines recently, after a mum of a 17-month-old toddler was also fined £75 for feeding the ducks in her local park.
