  1. Hi. A bit late, but I used to be an Environmental Protection Officer and enforced such issues. Several things, 1,giving the incorrect name but the correct address is just plain dumb! If you are going to lie, then lie properly. Secondly, there are several offences at play your friend could be guilty of, from defacing property through to public exposure. Third, if the council are worth their salt, they will interview your friends family under caution in order to identify him, s108 of the Environment Act allows an authority to require that a person incriminate someone in their e
  2. Where to start... Over the age of criminal responsibility then yes fpn can be issued. Officers need to advise you of their identification and do not have to be in uniform. A valid Id should be shown though. Failing to give correct details is an offence which can lead to arrest. 80 is cheaper than the several hundred you would get in court up to a maximum 2500. I have even had People demand proof that they dropped the litter ie photographs. Doesnt wash. If an officer saw you drop it then it's likely you dropped it. If not then you should argue the fact in court. If you dropped
  3. If they have evidence (statement, CCTV footage etc) then an authority (police or council) aren't obliged to provide you with proof... not until the prosecution. Then it's too late and it's the magistrate that decides whether you are guilty or not. You either did it or you didn't.
  4. It does include private areas as well. A common misconception is that littering is only if it;s on public land. Key part of the legislation actually states littering or depositing waste is illegal 'In or on any land' unless authorised to do so. End of the day, if someone throws a fag butt into your garden, would you consider it littering? However, if you said to that person 'Yes, go ahead and throw it onto my garden' then that's NOT littering as you have given permission to do so.. .So ask yourself 'did I get permission to deposit my waste onto their

  7. My car is due to be returned to the lease company this friday, and I have an insurance claim in regarding the repair to the roof lining. The approved repairers gave a turnaround of 3 weeks, and I advised the insurance company I would search for another garage. The local main dealer for my vehicle (Ford Focus) advised me they had the part in stock, and they ordered it and booked my vehicle in for repair on the Monday (yesterday). The insurance company have approved the repairs to go ahead. So I took the car in and was about to hand the key over when I asked if the part was in, bearing in
  8. The contract doesnt mention a minimum hours. However she is full time employed and as and when the business requires. ie sometimes there may be less hours due to.business demands. however they are not considering demands purely her migraine attacks. If that makes sense...
  9. i would agree wholeheartedly. As they have no contractual absence management policy I feel they are being very unfair to impose the lesser hours. A Reasonable change for her would be to let them know asap... even if it is moments before or during her shift. sometimes she battles through but other times such as today she is crippled in pain. Its not like its every single day but she has them regularly enough to impact her life. 2-3 a month... thank you for replying.
  10. Hi, My partner is suffering frequent migraines, doctors have put her on beta blockers but this only reduces the migraines to 1-2 a month. she has had them all her life and when she does not have them, she ges above and beyond for her employer. However, as the sufferer of migranes knows, these can be sudden attacks out of nowhere. Her employer has a policy that you must ring in sick hours before the start of the shift if you are ill which is fair enough (however this does not work when there is noone else in to receive the call but that's a seperate matter). there is no absence managemen
