Mushroom pickers in London parks warned they face prosecution

Mushroom foragers in Epping forest are being warned they face being prosecuted if they pick the fungi.

The park's rangers have caught people picking huge quantities of mushrooms - thought to then be sold on for commercial gain.

There are bylaws in place to stop people doing this, as the conservation team say it is harmful to the environment.
