(DAILYMAIL) — A non-smoking pensioner has been ordered to pay a £75 fine for throwing away a cigarette butt he found stuck to his shoe.

Ken Morris, 72, from Trebanos in South Wales received a letter from Neath Port Talbot Council telling him he had been seen discarding a used cigarette in a shopping centre car park before driving off the previous day .

Despite the butt being initially discarded by someone else and Mr Morris being a non-smoker for many years he paid up, saying he couldn’t argue that he had inadvertently littered.
