Two men in Waltham Forest have been prosecuted for spitting in the street after failing to pay an on the spot fine Telegraph. They were each fined £300 in their absence.

Spitting in public is disgusting but isn't charging people £80 for gobbing in the street a bit much?

I've been spat on. The guy didn't mean tospit on me but just mumbled "sorry hen" and sauntered off, leaving me to attempt to clean the glob of spit off my knee. Dirty bastard.
