Litter is unsightly, potentially dangerous to people or animals, and is a criminal offence. The average fine for littering is around £95, but can be up to £2,500.
The 1990 Environmental Protection Act states that if a person leaves anything that causes defacement in a public place, they are committing a littering offence. So always use a litter bin or take it home.
