John C. James, of 135 Lord Lane, Failsworth. was also fined a total of £5 Irt respect of five offences of a similar nature. Mr James travelled to work on the 76 bus service and 65 service and on each occasion only paid is for a Is 6d journey.

Mr Ian Buttress, prosecuting, pointed out that SELNEC were strengthening their team of inspectors to deal with fare evasion.

The stipendiary magistrate stated: "As these are the first summons to be brought, I don't want to impose heavy fines. If there is a repetition, more substantial fines are likely to be forthcoming."
