Burnley magistrates have fined Wendy Kershaw (52), of Queen Victoria Road, Burnley, for failing to clear up waste in her rear yard.

Burnley Council sent a letter and an abatement notice to Kershaw in August last year requesting her to clear up the waste. Council staff removed it in September 2014 after she failed to comply.

Kershaw failed to attend court and was fined £600, ordered to pay £210 costs, £75 compensation and a £60 victim surcharge.
