Spitting in public places now carries an £80 fine in London

Londoners who spit in public are to be hit with a £80 on-the-spot fine as part of a new crackdown on anti-social behaviour.

People who spit in public are unlikely to be fined if they have a “reasonable excuse” or if they do so into a handkerchief, tissue, bin, spittoon or other receptacle.

According to a London Councils’ spokesman: “Anti-social spitting impacts people’s quality of life. This is exactly the sort of measure boroughs can and should implement to make their local areas more pleasant places to live and work”.
