Hundreds of anti-Ulez campaigners are demonstrating outside London Bridge station in opposition to Sadiq Khan’s hated £12-a-day plan – with some saying they refuse to pay the daily charge.
There is growing anger among Londoners with several of the newly-installed cameras which will enforce the proposed expansion have been attacked by self-styled vigilantes opposed to the scheme.
A large group of protesters are gathered on the central London road, with banners expressing their hatred for the Ulez and Khan’s ‘toxic air lie’.
Drivers of older, polluting cars are hard-hit by the plan, which is enforced by the cameras, have to pay £12.50 a day to use their vehicle across Greater London. This has sparked furious backlash.
Richard Tice, leader of the Reform Party, was also present at the demonstration, said the next mayoral election should be a referendum on the hated plan, as he urged the Tories to stand aside and back his candidate, Howard Cox.
