Gedling Borough Council spend £40,000 chasing £1,900 tax debt

A COUNCIL could be forced to pay out more than £100,000 – for pursuing a bankruptcy order against a elderly Notts man who owed just £1,900 in council tax.

Nottingham County Court heard that the bill for court and bankruptcy trustee fees currently stood at £68,692.

My comment: Another 'you couldn't make it up' story about a stupid council taking risks with taxpayer's money.
