Tory Council Fines Victims Of Crime


Conservative run Thurrock Council has been blasted as ‘heartless’ over its policy of fining victims of crime.  Residents who have their bins stolen are to be charged by the Council for their replacement.

Cllr Tim Aker said: “To charge residents a fee for replacing stolen bins is completely unjust and shows how the Conservatives don’t care about the people of Thurrock.  Residents have come to me exasperated at the Council’s attitude.  There is no sympathy or empathy for residents who now face more charges from the Council.  To penalise victims of crime like this is a disgrace and shows how inflexible the bureaucracy and Tory Cabinet are.

“Residents have the chance next year to kick the Tories out and replace them with an administration that will deliver for residents.”
