Press Release   •   Aug 30, 2017 06:30 BST

Dom Littlewood’s new BBC1 series follows the work of London Midland’s Revenue Protection Team

Dom On The Spot, featuring Dom Littlewood, is set to return to BBC for a 10 x 45’ series. Britain is handing out more fines than ever with hundreds of new offences being added every year. But however frustrating, these fines are here for a reason – to protect us.

Fronted by Dom Littlewood, Dom On The Spot delves behind the statistics to follow the hard-working men and women charged with upholding the law, from fare dodgers to road tax evaders, from fly-tipping to dog fouling, from dodgy HGVs to noisy neighbours. If you can be fined for it … Dom is there! Dom will be on the spot accompanying these officials, exploring why the fines are doled out and questioning why we break the law on a day to day basis. He’ll also be meeting the victims affected by these day-to-day crimes.

The producers, Twofour, worked with London Midland’s Revenue Protection Team when filming across the network.

Tune into the series from Monday, 4th September at 1100 hours on BBC One.
