Why does law apply to one and not all?

Wheelie bin
Wheelie bin

A Pendle woman has been heavily fined for leaving her wheelie bin out.

Why only this person, I ask? Take a walk around Nelson and you will see dozens of bins that live permanently in the back street, so why aren’t those householders taken to court? Are they not subject to the same rules and regulations as the woman who was fined?

Perhaps the council’s Operational Services Manager David Walker can tell us why the law is stringently enforced in one area but not another and what steps he is taking to remedy the matter?
