Car litter louts are blighting the countryside and costing council tax-payers millions thanks to a legal loophole which lets offenders get off scot free, council leaders warn.

The Local Government Association is calling on the Government to toughen up legislation in the Localism Bill to allow councils to take action against the registered keeper of a vehicle from which rubbish is thrown if the offender can’t be identified. The change would bring littering from a vehicle in line with speeding and fly-tipping.
