Hull man fined for advertising cars for sale on road
A man has been prosecuted for illegally advertising cars for sale on the road.
Hull City Council's environmental neighbourhood officers visited Clough Road after receiving several complaints earlier this year.
Residents said more than one vehicle advertised for sale was taking up space in Minton Street.
Stephen Johnson, trading as Clough Road Car Sales in Clough Road, was found guilty and ordered to pay a £350 fine, costs of £350 and a £15 victims' surcharge.

Councillor John Hewitt, portfolio holder for neighbourhoods and commun- ities, said: "These cars were advertised for sale and parked illegally which makes the city look untidy.
"This trader did not comply with legisla- tion and environment- al neighbourhood officers will not hesitate in taking action.
"We will continue to work with businesses to encourage them to advertise their vehicles in a responsible and legal manner."
