Brent police crack down on paan spitting
police issue 24 �80 fixed penalty tickets
Police launched a crackdown on paan spitting, and issued 24 �80 fixed penalty tickets.
Paan is a tobacco leaf based mixture commonly chewed as a palate cleanser in the Indian sub continent.
But when chewers spit out the substance it leaves unsightly dark brown stains on the pavements.
The crackdown follows the launch last year of a council led publicity campaign to deter people from spitting paan.
