Sixty people in Weston were caught watching live TV without a licence in the past year, new figures have revealed.
The TV Licensing company has announced 60 people between the ages of 18-25 were caught watching TV without a licence in the area since last October.
The company is also reminding anyone who watches or records live TV without one can be fined up to £1,000.
A South West spokesperson for the company said: “If you are watching live TV on any device, including mobiles and tablets, or watch catch up programmes on BBC iPlayer – you need to be covered by a TV licence.”
People who watch live TV through online streaming services including Virgin Media, Sky Go and Amazon Instant Video would also need a licence.
