A TRAFFIC warden was caught ticketing cars in the wrong street because he didn't know where the borough's border was.

Residents living in Essex Road, Chadwell Heath, were surprised to find their cars slapped with tickets from Barking and Dagenham Council.

The street, just off Chadwell Heath High Road, is about 400 yards inside the border of neighbouring Redbridge.

Barking and Dagenham Council says the confused warden was new on the job, and all fines will be cancelled or refunded if they have already been paid.

The mistakes happened between October 14 and 19, and a total of 10 tickets were handed out in the wrong patch.
