MORE than 340 people in Hereford were caught watching TV without a licence during 2012, according to figures from TV Licensing reveal.

In Leominster more than 90 people were found not to have paid the licence, in results recorded from January 2012 until last month.

Mark Whitehouse, TV licensing spokesman for the West Midlands, said: “In order to be fair to the law-abiding majority who do pay for their licence, we’ll continue to pursue the small minority of people who do not pay.”

Failure to pay for a licence could result in prosecution and fines of up to £1,000.
