Blitz on city TV licence dodgers.

LIVERPOOL'S TV licence dodgers face a fresh crackdown.

Over the past month, more than 480 people in the city have been caught without a licence.

And TV Licensing says a new task force is due to hit the streets in February with double the number of inquiry officers than ever before to track down the dodgers.

Their drive is kicking off with major community based activity and a high profile advertising campaign to raise awareness of the need for a licence.

Offenders caught without one can face fines of up to pounds 1,000.

Deborah Copeland, TV Licensing spokeswoman for the north west, said: ``We want to encourage people to get a licence before they get a knock on the door.''
