Woman faces trial over apple core
Kate Badger
Ms Badger chose to stand trial at crown court
A woman is to stand trial at crown court for allegedly throwing an apple core out of her car window.

Kate Badger, from Cornwall Road in Tettenhall, Wolverhampton, refused to pay a 60 on-the-spot fine after the alleged incident in March last year.

The 25-year-old appeared before magistrates in the city where she elected to stand trial at crown court.

The case was adjourned until 12 March. If Ms Badger is found guilty she could be sent to prison.

She denies a charge of "knowingly causing the deposit of controlled waste, namely an apple core, on land which did not have a waste management licence".
