A ULEZ camera van in Biggin Hill was sabotaged by protesters demonstrating against Sadiq Khan's new rules.

Police were called to Stock Hill, leading to temporary traffic gridlock in the Biggin Hill area, after a van was coated in foam and had its tyres deflated.

A local resident, 29, explaining the situation to MyLondon, said: "Basically the ULEZ [van] has been parked there all day, and then there was a ULEZ protest covering the ULEZ van will billboards and then just now someone sprayed expanding foam on the windscreen and let down the tyres.

"The ULEZ bloke was inside the van, and the protestors wouldn't let him out.

"So, the police turned up to help but a low loader had come to pick the van up and the police closed the road.

"It's chaos.

"The whole of Biggin Hill is gridlock.

"There's a lot of people crowded around.

"The protesters are cheering."

A new report by Transport for London (TfL) found that 57,200 drivers paid the £12.50 daily charge on on average in the first month of the new ULEZ rules.

2,696 fines a day are being given which are £180, reduced to £90 if paid within 14 days.

From April 1 to October 31, 2023, the Met recorded 987 crimes relating to ULEZ cameras.

This includes 220 reports of cameras being stolen and 767 cameras being damaged.

The Metropolitan Police has said it is “not providing commentary on each individual incident in relation to ULEZ”.
