Man charged with damaging London’s ULEZ cameras

A 42 year old man has been charged with criminal damage and destruction of, or damage to, property in connection to attacks on ULEZ cameras in London.

The Met Police says there have been 96 allegations of criminal damage which were passed to it by Transport for London.

The attacks have been part of a campaign against the expansion of the scheme. It is thought opponents are using a Facebook group to share locations of the cameras, which TfL has refused to make public.

Detective Superintendent Daniel Smith, whose officers are leading the investigation, said: “We have been proactively targeting those we suspect of causing or seeking to cause damage. We are carrying out a thorough investigation and this includes gathering CCTV, speaking to potential witnesses and following up active leads. We are also working with TfL to prevent further offences in the future.”
