Anti-ULEZ protesters clash with Met Police officers as they’re prevented from protesting hated low-emission scheme outside Sadiq Khan’s London home in heated scenes

A crowd of anti-ULEZ protesters clashed with Metropolitan Police officers in furious scenes after they were prevented from demonstrating outside Sadiq Khan‘s south London home.

The activists reacted with fury after officers stopped them from marching close to where the Mayor of London lives.

The group were protesting Mr Khan’s much-hated road charge, which forces motorists whose vehicles are non-compliant with emissions rules to pay £12.50 a day to drive in London.

Mr Khan is facing a backlash from motorists after expanding the ULEZ zone last year to cover all London boroughs, with hundreds of the ULEZ cameras being vandalised by so-called ‘Blade Runners’.

Video shows that they were told by Met Police they were ‘too close to his house’ – prompting an outcry and mockery as the demonstrators accused the officers of an ‘abuse of power’.

The police tactics have been branded a disgrace on TikTok, where angry campaigners have compared the incident to the freedom allowed to pro-Palestinian marchers in London.

One furious TikToker commented: ‘Why don’t they use that power when all these marches are always going past our monuments and our fallen heroes in London? Hypocrisy.’

Another wrote: ‘If you’d been waving pro-Palestine flags the police would have been nowhere to be seen.’

The protest took place on Saturday April 6, but videos of the confrontation have since gone viral on TikTok.

Five people were arrested on the day. They were later released on bail without charges.

Footage posted on the social media platform shows police being heckled whilst a female cop orders the protestors to disburse.

In one video, entitled ‘It’s now illegal to walk down Sadiq Khan’s road’, a man who appears to be leading the group complains: ‘Sadiq Khan said ‘I’ve got no problem with people (being here).’ ‘

The woman officer can be heard telling the crowd: ‘As I have already explained to you, the current location where you are is too close to his house. You are not allowed under Section 42 of the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001…’

She continues: ‘It’s well within the legislation otherwise we wouldn’t be having this conversation.’

When the protestors insist on being allowed to pass, the cop says ‘no no’ and starts quoting legislation.
