There would be consequences such as being prosecuted for leaving litter in a public place rather than on your driveway but heigh-ho that's life nowadays.
I do hope it's not the binmen playing up because you forgot to give them a Christmas drink. Nah, can't be, they don't do things like that, do they?

Meanwhile Newham Council has raised more than £50,000 in fines from dumpers.
