Hackney has been awarded funding for three new "pocket parks" to brighten up forgotten pint-sized plots of land.

In total across the capital 100 underused spaces the size of a tennis court, will be revamped by 2015 thanks to £2million funding from City Hall.

A former car breakers’ yard behind Sutton House in Homerton High Street will be transformed into a “garden of imagination”, with a wonderland of installations, hidden spaces and activity areas thanks to a grant of £40,000.

Meanwhile an unused, unwelcoming and desolate area on the Trelawney Estate in Morning Lane nearby the fashion hub scheme will be turned into an inviting area at a cost of £40,000.

And a space riddled with litter because of fly tipping in Woodberry Down Estate will become a communal wildlife garden with a grant of £23,466 .
