Dozens in Chichester caught without TV licence

TV LICENSING has revealed that 110 people in Chichester were caught watching TV without a licence during the first six months of 2012.

They are among more than 204,000 people caught across the UK between January and July.

Victoria Sykes, TV Licensing spokesperson, said: “Today’s figures paint a very positive picture as the vast majority of people in the UK continue to pay their licence fee.

“Unfortunately, a minority of people do not pay for their 
licence, which is unfair to the law-abiding majority who 
do pay.

“If people decide to watch TV without being properly licensed, they could face a fine of up to £1,000.”

There are different payment schemes in place for people who may struggle to pay, as a colour TV licence costs £145.50.
