    Q52: I have not paid my fine and I think there may be a fines warrant outstanding for me, what should I do?

    You should attend at the nearest Magistrates' Court as soon as possible and explain what has happened. The officials will check to see if a warrant is outstanding and if it is, you may be arrested temporarily whilst you appear before the court, so it is a good idea to go in the morning during the week.

    Some warrants are 'backed for bail' so you will be arrested, taken to the police station and bailed to appear at the next convenient court.

    If you fail to attend at court to resolve the matter then you could be arrested and imprisoned.
