A man has been fined almost £1,000 after someone was seen getting out of his car to urinate in a Barking street.

CCTV captured a man relieving himself in Sunningdale Avenue on August 24, 2019, then returning to a blue Vauxhall Corsa, which belonged to Raymond Kamara-Taylor.

As the registered owner of the car, Mr Kamara-Taylor was required to provide details of who was driving it at the time. He failed to do so and was summoned to court.

Mr Kamara-Taylor, of Oban House, Barking, didn't attend the hearing on February 9 and was ordered to pay a fine of £975.18, costs and a victim surcharge.

Cllr Margaret Mullane, cabinet member for enforcement and community safety, said: “Our borough streets are not a public toilet and such unacceptable behaviour risks the health and safety of our residents.”
