Two men have been fined for illegally displaying cars for sale in a street in Harlesden.
Heider Rasheed and Osamah Altameemi, were responsible for 10 cars being left within 500 metres of each other on roads near Barretts Green Road.
It is illegal to advertise cars for sale on the internet and for the cars to be within 500 metres of each other on public roads.
Brent Council were tipped off about the pair by residents and traders who were unable to park on the road as the cars were hogging spaces.
Last week at Willesden Magistrates Court, they were convicted of breaching section three of the Neighbourhoods and Environmental Act 2005 and ordered to pay £2,370 each.

Cllr Michael Pavey, Deputy Leader of Brent Council said “We are trying to create communities where neighbours co-operate and live harmoniously. This kind of trading massively inconveniences residents, so we are delighted that the Court has taken such firm action.
“We hope it will deter other traders and encourage residents to report similar incidents.”
