Ulez cameras have been attacked nearly 1,000 times in just seven months, shocking figures reveal.
Sadiq Khan‘s expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (Ulez) to cover the whole of Greater London, meaning people who drive in the area with a polluting vehicle must pay a £12.50 daily fee, has been met with anger by affected motorists.
There has been widespread evidence of cameras and vans becoming the target of activists as they are sprayed with paint or even toppled in an effort to halt the tax on drivers, which came in on August 29.
Today, the Met Police said there have been 987 crimes relating to the cameras in the capital, including 220 reports of them being stolen and 767 being damaged.
The force also confirmed there have been five arrests and two charges in relation to the attacks.
