Housewife Lau Shiu-fun, 55, who was fined $1,500 for dropping what she said was her house key, appears outside Kowloon City Court, where she pleaded not guilty to littering yesterday.

Ms Lau accused eight hygiene inspectors of framing her on January 3, when she said she accidentally dropped the key in Lok Shan Road near her home in Ma Tau Wai.

The case was adjourned to July 7, when it will be heard in Tsuen Wan Court.

If convicted, Ms Lau faces a doubling of her $1,500 littering penalty.
