A person can be heard in the video saying: “Just down in Northdown Road, the poles down for the second time this week.

“Looks like it’s been covered in a lot of dog sh**. That’s full up with it, I think it’s become the new dog litter bin.

“Oh wow.”

The cameras are being used to ensure anyone driving a non-compliant car is paying a daily charge of £12.50.

Cameras are using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology to identify vehicles.

Some people were left impressed in the comments of the video, with one commenting: “Very good job.”

Another person said: “Hilarious.”

No one in the comment section showed any anger or disagreement towards what had happened.

People who drive in the zone with a non-compliant vehicle and fail to pay the £12.50 daily fee are initially being sent warning letters.

There were 510 crimes relating to ULEZ cameras reported between the start of April and the end of August, figures released by the Metropolitan Police show.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, who made the decision to expand ULEZ to the whole of London from August 29, previously warned people attacking cameras that “protest should be lawful, safe and peaceful”, adding: “It is really important to stay on the right side of the law.”

The News Shopper has contacted Transport for London regarding the video.
