A council has successfully prosecuted two people for spitting in a move that is expected to see authorities across the country follow suit.

Khasheem Kiah Thomas, 18, and Zilvinus Vitkas were both handed fines after being prosecuted by Waltham Forest Council in north-east London, under the same powers used to battle littering.
