You are correct. If I accidentally dropped litter and was approached by Kingdom and informed I was being offered a FPN, I would refuse it and defend in Magistrates Court. They have to produce video evidence of the alleged offence, which will of course show it as an accident.
“enforcement action is inappropriate or would be disproportionate for the offence”
If someone intentionally drops litter then an offer of a FPN to avoid prosecution is appropriate IMO.
The thing is we all live in the digital age and can all look up information on line.
Liitering IS a criminal offence. If a Police officer has reasonable suspicion you have commited an offence you are legally obliged to give your details.
