Wrexham council collects more fines for littering than parking

Wrexham council is thought to be the first in the UK to have collected more fines for littering than parking offences.

More than 3,000 £75 fixed penalty tickets were issued in the past six months as part of the council's "zero tolerance" approach to litter.

There has been criticism that enforcement officers are over-zealous but the authority says the aim is to keep Wrexham tidy.

Matthew Richards reports.
