LINDSAY Lohan has "picked up the pace" of her community service in London.

The 28-year-old actress, who is currently starring in 'Speed-the-Plow' in the West End, has also been assisting an agency that works with neglected children and disabled people during her time in the city.

Superior Court Judge James R. Dabney praised the 'Mean Girls' star at a hearing in Los Angeles on Thursday (06.11.14) for completing 102 hours of her 240-hour court-ordered service, as part of a plea deal she struck after she was charged with reckless driving and lying to police about being behind the wheel during a crash near Santa Monica, California in June 2012.

The judge said she had received favourable reports from her counsellor and the London-based charity, and also formally ended her probation stemming from when she was found guilty of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a shop in July 2011.

Following the hearing, Lindsay's attorney Shawn Holley told E! News: "The judge was pleased, the prosecutors were pleased and of course I'm pleased that Lindsay's doing well on probation, with her career, and generally with her life."

Lindsay did not attend the hearing, as she was not required to do so, and another progress update has been set for January 28, 2015.

A source recently revealed that the actress, who has sought treatment in rehab six times, plans to move back to her native New York City after her play finishes in London on November 29.
