The actor Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to serve 125 additional hours of community service after questions were asked about the nature of the work she was doing while carrying out her service with the social action and volunteering charity CSV.

A Los Angeles judge has annulled the credits that Lohan received during her time working in London and told her to do 125 more hours of community service.

Speaking to the LA Times after the hearing, which was held behind closed doors, Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, said the court and prosecutors had a problem with some of the activities she had carried out as part of the 240 hours of community service she was ordered to complete after she was found guilty of reckless driving by a court in California in 2013.

With the help of CSV she had arranged to serve her sentence in London while she starred in a West End production.

It had been alleged that CSV "retroactively" signed off hours for Lohan and listed as part of her community service meeting audience members after her London play and allowing fans to work-shadow her.

Earlier this week, CSV denied that it colluded with Lohan to inflate the number of hours of community service that she had carried out.

Further proceedings are due to take place on 12 March to decide how Lohan can complete the community service in an acceptable way.

A spokeswoman for CSV said today: "The decision as to how these hours will be completed won’t be known until 12 March, and until then we can’t speculate or comment on the outcome."
