A St Helens woman ended up paying £365 after she was caught dropping a cigarette butt in the town centre.

Charlene Lyon was caught by council officials littering in Church Street on October 15 last year.

The 27-year-old of Gillars Green Drive appeared before magistrates earlier this month.

She was found guilty in her absence and ordered to pay a £150 fine, and a £20 victim surcharge.
