Coun­cil­lor fined

The lat­est boater to feel the ef­fects of the En­vi­ron­ment Agency’s con­tin­ued crack­down on un­reg­is­tered craft on the Thames is a pub land­lord and district coun­cil­lor. The EA said Peter Kel­land told the court that he hadn’t used his boat for cruis­ing on the river, but that the Agency re­quires boaters to regis­ter “all boats kept, used or let for hire on the River Thames”. He was or­dered to pay a to­tal of £790.85 in fines, un­paid fees, costs and vic­tim sur­charge.
