Parents allowing their little ones to spend a penny on potties in public have been hit with £75 fines – in a bizarre scam by a bogus council enforcement officer.
Conwy council in north Wales said it had received reports of the fake officer handing out illegal fines at Colwyn Bay to parents for letting children use potties in public.
“If you are approached, please do not hand over any money. Always ask to see an ID card and if in doubt contact the council direct,” the authority said.
Kingdom enforcement officers in Conwy county do not, and have never, issued fixed penalty notices for urinating in a public place.
