A man who exposed himself near a children’s play area was sentenced to 80 hours of unpaid work and fined £260 this week.

Adam Campling, 27, of Alpine Road in Leyton, was found guilty of outraging public decency after he removed his clothing in view of the playground in Devons Road, Tower Hamlets, on October 10 last year.

At Thames Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday he was also ordered to attend meetings with a supervising officer for six months.

He had denied the offence but was convicted on February 11.
