A MECHANIC has been fined £850 for running his motorcycle repair business on the pavement outside his garage.

Thames magistrates in East London ordered Anthony Burlington to pay £500 prosecution costs on top for blocking the pavement in Whitechapel’s famous Sidney Street.

He was convicted in his absence after being summonsed by Tower Hamlets Council which said it received complaints from neighbours.

Council inspectors used surveillance footage and sent warning letters about tyres left in the street on five occasions in November, contravening the 1980 Highways Act, which they said he ignored.
