Havering council Cabinet member for towns and communities, Cllr Andrew Curtin, said: “These two convictions show that Havering council, the police and Crown Prosecution Service will take firm action to deal with those caught vandalising our parks and open spaces.
“Information from the public and our CCTV system means those who cause such damage are now much more likely to be caught and prosecuted so we hope they get the message to keep their paint cans at home.”
