An anti-ULEZ protester claims she has been left on crutches after being hit by a ULEZ security car in Bromley.

The incident is alleged to have taken place at 4.30pm on Saturday, November 12.

Heather Watt told ITV she expects to be in pain for weeks after the incident involving “a security car accompanying a mobile ULEZ camera-van” at Biggin Hill between Bromley and Kent.

The Westerham resident said she was left with bruising on her ankle, both shins, knee and pain in her thigh when the security car attempted to leave the protest.

Heather told ITV: "They knocked me in my legs which then pushed me onto the bonnet and then I was hobbling to try and get away.

“I thought I was going to go under the car, to be honest. And with that they just went.”

Police and the ambulance service were called to the scene, but Heather wrote on a public social media group that she declined to be taken to hospital that evening.

She was part of a group of locals attempting to block the camera van from recording drivers entering the ULEZ.

Heather, who is now using crutches to walk, said she will rejoin the protests despite her injuries.

The locations of ULEZ vans are shared in local Facebook groups and locals have taken to blocking the cameras with placards to force them to move.

In a statement, Transport for London said: "We are investigating exactly what happened, but it is our understanding that no-one was seriously injured.”

In March, Bromley Council voted to oppose Sadiq Khan’s ULEZ expansion, with Conservative councillor Will Rowlands calling it a “Berlin wall” along London’s outer borders.

The incident comes after the Metropolitan Police announced that almost 1,000 ULEZ cameras have been damaged or stolen in the seven months to November.

767 cameras have been damaged since April 1, while another 220 ULEZ cameras were stolen.

There have been five arrests relating to criminal damage to ULEZ cameras since the expansion of the zone was announced.

Three people have been charged, of which two were arrested and bailed, and one case was dropped.

The full Metropolitan Police statement said: “Police are investigating the circumstances of an allegation of criminal damage and a road traffic collision in Biggin Hill.

“Officers were initially called at approximately 16:30hrs on Sunday, 12 November to reports of criminal damage to a vehicle in Buckhurst Road, Westerham.

“A further call was received stating a woman had been injured after being in collision with a vehicle as it attempted to leave the scene; she was not seriously hurt.

“All parties involved were spoken to and an investigation into both incidents remains ongoing.

“Anyone with information that could assist police is asked to call 101 or ‘X’ @MetCC and quote CAD4481/12Nov.”
