As July began, new measures to punish people who mixed up their recycling were greeted with scepticism.

Enfield Borough Council based the scheme on a 'three-strike' policy, under which a first misdemeanour would lead to a warning, a second lapse would result in a letter and a final misdemeanour could lead to the household having their recycling bins takn away.

The council said almost 2,000 people had put out wrongly sorted recycling between January and March 2010, but Adrian Bishop-Laggett, vice president of the Federation of Enfield Residents and Allied Association, warned that some people could be punished if passers-by put litter in the bins, and called for education.

With long, warm summer nights, police revealed that every Sunday evening speed junkies of all ages were flocking to the A10 Great Cambridge Road to see who can post the fastest time on the stretch between Carterhatch Lane and the M25 junction.

The police warned that they would crack down on the issue and arrested as many as 20 people every Sunday for speeding.
