At Peterborough Magistrates Court, local businessman Alan Harling, from Felix Car Valeting, in North Street, Peterborough, was sentence to 56 days in prison because of non-payment of business rates.

There had been several previous court hearings, providing the opportunity for payment, concerning a long standing debt. The Court was satisfied that there had been a wilful refusal and a blameworthy neglect to pay.

Geoff Dobson, Director of Corporate Services for the city council, said, "Peterborough enjoys a very good collection record for the payment of business rates from the vast majority of local business. We provide every opportunity for payment, but for the small number that refuse to pay the Council looks to the Courts to enforce payment according to law."
