Trader is fined £300 by council for using black bin bags instead of grey

Customers shopping for clothes at the Charli boutique watched in amazement when two uniformed men marched in and threatened staff with criminal prosecution.

Their crime? Putting out rubbish in the wrong-coloured bin bags.

Council officers announced that the shop in Muswell Hill, North London, would be fined £300 after using black bags because they had run out of the grey version issued by the local authority.
