Lindsay Lohan must give an encore performance of 125 hours of community service after a US judge said she was wrongly given credit for appearing in a London play.

Los Angeles Superior Court judge Mark Young told the actress to redo the hours at a new agency and set a March 12 hearing to choose a new organisation where Lohan, 28, can complete the hours before a May 28 deadline.

Santa Monica's chief deputy city attorney Terry White said Lohan had received credits for time she spent performing in David Mamet's Speed-The-Plow, at the Playhouse Theatre. He said Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Holley, agreed that some of the hours would be redone at a new organisation.

Mr White raised concerns about Lohan's service at a hearing last month and was given time to investigate the issue.

He met Judge Young and Ms Holley in chambers before the judge's decision was announced. Lohan did not attend the hearing.

The community service is one of the last elements of Mean Girls star Lohan's sentence for a 2012 case involving reckless driving and lying to police, that was filed after she crashed into a dump truck on Pacific Coast Highway.
