An Essex man has been found guilty of causing serious damage to the entrance doors of Croxley’s London Underground station.

Artur Plisko, 21, of Kitson Way, Harlow, Essex, previously appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court, having been charged with criminal damage to property worth below £5,000.

He was meant to appear again at the same court on Friday, April 21, to enter his plea to the charge or provide proof against the charge. However, Plisko was a no show to the hearing, leading to him being trialled in absentia and found guilty.

It was stated that on April 3, 2022, he damaged the front door to the Tube station, located on Watford Road, either intentionally or through recklessness as to whether the door would be damaged or even destroyed.

The doors are owned by Underground operators Transport for London (TfL)and their value has been given at £1,000.

Plisko was handed a £220 fine for the crime, as well an added £500 charge for compensation to TfL for the door’s repairs.

He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £34, bringing the total amount of money he must pay up to £754.
