    I have a question about Local Council fines for dogs at large. The Council issued me with a fine with the incorrect dog details. After calling the council they said they would be withdrawing the fine. I received a notice of withdrawal.

    Two weeks later, I have received another fine for the same incident with the correct details. Can they just change details like that?

    If you committed an offence, then the council are able to issue you with a fine. You are not exculpated simply because they said they were withdrawing a notice due to an error.
