Lindsay Lohan has started work in a morgue.

Judge Stephanie Sautner has pulled the 'Mean Girls' actress from her current community service assignment with the Red Cross and told probation police to assign her to duty at a Los Angeles mortuary.

She will have to spend 120 hours sweeping the floor of the building where human corpses are stored, which is part of her sentence for stealing a $2,500 necklace in January.

Before starting work at the Red Cross, Lindsay was kicked out of her community service programme at the Los Angeles Downtown Women's Center.

The 25-year-old star had to complete 380 hours of community work at the centre as part of her punishment but after a "very unimpressive" performance where she is said to have only served 60 of the required hours she was asked to leave.

Lindsay's probation officer also wrote that the troubled actress had problems with the Women's Center, because it was "not fulfilling".

Lindsay is set to go before Judge Sautner today where she faces up to 18 months in prison after allegedly skipping some of her probation requirements.

Despite being kicked out of two community service projects, Lindsay is said to be "extremely focused" on completing her punishment.

Her representative Steve Honig explained earlier this week: "Lindsay performed community service every single day this past week at the Red Cross, and has been spending the bulk of the weekend fulfilling her therapy and shoplifters course requirements. She is extremely focused on her court-ordered obligations."
