FILE PICTURE – A squirrel. A young family were shocked when an enforcement officer slapped them with a £60 fine, FOR FEEDING A SQUIRREL. See MASONS story MNSQUIRREL. Sandra Spearing, 45, was with her daughter and one year-old granddaughter Lacey Louise Murphy waiting for a taxi. After giving Lacey some Christmas cake she’d bought in Iceland, she encouraged her granddaughter to give the cake to two squirrels they had seen in a churchyard. She said: “I said to throw them the cake instead of wasting it. The next moment an enforcement officer came over and said ‘what have you just thrown?’” The Enforcement officer issued the fine to Sandra’s daughter, Emma-Louise Dawson, 21, but she took on the fine herself.
