Smokers warned

A PUB has warned its customers they face a £50 fine if they drop their cigarette ends outside the premises.

A sign to that effect was put up at the weekend at The Reivers Bar in High Street, Galashiels.

A spokesman for Scottish Borders Council said community wardens had offered advice to the manageress of the pub.

“They stated that anyone dropping a cigarette end on the pavement or side of the road rather than using the receptacle provided would be issued with a fixed penalty notice of £50,” explained the spokesman.
