Two men spotted using golf clubs to hit cans and bottles into a lake on Wanstead Flats have been ordered to pay £250 each.

Karol Adam Federowicz, of Bignold Road, Forest Gate, and Miroslaw Potrzyszcz, of Plashet Road, Upton Park, were fined at Barkingside Magistrates on May 16 for failing to pay a fixed penalty notice over the offence in January.

Two officers from Redbridge’s Community Police Team saw the men, with two others, dropping litter on the flats before treating the space like a driving range.

One officer described Mr Potrzyszcz as appearing unconcerned and oblivious to the impact of littering.

The pair were each fined £110 and ordered to pay a £20 victim surcharge and costs of £120.
