Hundreds caught with no TV licence
8:55am Wednesday 20th February 2013 in News
MORE than 940 people were caught TV licence-dodging in York last year, new figures have revealed.
TV Licensing said more than 250 Selby viewers and more than 900 in Scarborough were also found watching their screens without a licence, but almost 95 per cent of homes across the UK had one and the average “evasion rate” in 2012 was low.
Spokeswoman Lucy Baird 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 who do not pay.”
