Woman fined £150 for feeding pigeon sausage

Sally-Ann Fricker said she was out shopping in Bath with her daughter and her two young boys when a pigeon landed in front of them.
She broke off a corner of the snack and threw it to the bird which immediately flew off with the morsel.
Bath and North East Somerset Council said anyone caught littering faced a £150 fixed penalty fine.
However, councillor Dave Wood said they would be reviewing the action taken by the contractor "to determine whether it was proportionate".
Ms Fricker's daughter, Toni Bradley, said her mother was approached "seconds later" by the enforcement officer after throwing the food.
He told her she would be fined £150, but this would be reduced to £100 if she paid it within 14 days.
