Flaming brands, lions with lasers:
A nurse was given a £100 fine for littering after she fed a group of ducks.
Susan Watson, 68, a dementia nurse said she was “shocked and embarrassed” when a council worker approached her by the River Medway in Tonbridge, Kent, after she had torn up a piece of bread and scattered it among the ducks last month.
She was then spoken to by an officer from Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council (TMBC) and given a £100 fine for littering.
Ms Watson told KentOnline: “I was so shocked. I remember someone started to run after me, shouting ‘hello’. He told me I was on camera and that I had committed an environmental infringement.
It’s the tiny things that spark. The trigger is something so obviously nonsense that the entire structure comes into clear view. The fuckwits have taken over – Carthage here we come.
