Plaid Cymru MEP Jill Evans fined on licence fee refusal


Plaid Cymru MEP Jill Evans must pay £575 after admitting refusing to pay her TV licence fee.

Her refusal to pay was part of a campaign by Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg, the Welsh Language Society, over changes to the way the Welsh-language television channel S4C is run and cuts to its funding.

The society ended its campaign at the weekend after the BBC and S4C reached an agreement over the the channel's future until 2017.

After appearing before Pontypridd magistrates, she told Kevin Leonard she now intended to pay her licence fee.
