A spokesman for Sefton Council said:
“Dropping litter is an offence, no matter how big or small an item is.
“All residents and visitors to our beautiful borough are responsible for correctly disposing of their own waste and we will not hesitate in following court proceedings for those who simply ignore this.
“People need to think twice before just throwing their waste away and court cases like these highlight what can happen if you are caught. Either take it home or use a bin.”
