EA acts on li­cence eva­sion

Canal Boat - - News -

THE EN­VI­RON­MENT AGENCY con­tin­ues to crack down on boat own­ers keep­ing craft on the Thames with­out valid reg­is­tra­tion, as two Read­ing boaters found out to the tune of £1,800.

As the river’s nav­i­ga­tion au­thor­ity, the Agency re­quires boats used or kept on the Thames to be reg­is­tered – or face pros­e­cu­tion. In Read­ing Mag­is­trates Court, Rowan Newey pleaded guilty of not reg­is­ter­ing two craft and was re­quired to pay £1,349.96. While, Jeff Hunt, was found guilty in his ab­sence, which cost him £471.95 in fine, com­pen­sa­tion and pros­e­cu­tion costs.
