Prats of The Week - Waltham Forest Council
This week it goes to Waltham Forest Council.
Just ask Linda Bracey, owner of Electro Signs, who fell foul of the council's environmental police.
What was her "crime"?
She gave away spare cardboard boxes to a passer-by, one of which ended up on a fly tipping site. Despite the fact that Mrs Bracey did not dump the box herself, the council decided to take her to court for illegally disposing of business waste.
Can you guess what happened in court?
Yes, that's right, the judge ( Judge Alex Milne QC) called for an outbreak of commonsense and the jury acquitted her.
The cost to the taxpayer of Waltham Forest Council's absurd decision to prosecute was £15K.
Waltham Forest Council, well deserving Prats of The Week!
