Anti-ULEZ demo goes awry when protesters’ van wheels are PUNCTURED – as crowd marches over expansion of Sadiq Khan’s controversial scheme

  • At least 15 tyres from seven vehicles were reportedly punctured in Bromley 

Several vehicles had their tyres punctured in Bromley today during an anti-ULEZ protest that had to be handled by police. 

Cars which formed part of the convoy that were parked along a road in the Greater London town were targeted – with at least 15 tyres from seven vehicles reportedly punctured. 

One man was pictured taking out a flat tyre and replacing it after a pro-ULEZ protester put holes in the wheels of a van.  

Today’s crowd of marchers came after hundreds of motorists gathered in London this month to protest against Sadiq Khan’s ULEZ expansion scheme before it comes into force at the end of August. 

Protesters previously gathered in Trafalgar Square in central London as part of the demonstration organised by the Action Against ULEZ Extension group to hit out at the London Mayor’s much hated plans. 

Today people in Bromley were seen holding up protest signs reading ‘Khant pay, won’t pay’ and ‘stop the toxic air life’ as they set out to put a halt to the environmental scheme.

Police try to diffuse the situation in Bromley this afternoon during the ULEZ protest 

Police were seen trying to control the situation as angry protesters paraded down the town’s streets. 

The ULEZ expansion will come into force in a few weeks and will require Londoners to pay £12.50-a-day to drive in Greater London if their cars do not meet certain environmental standards.

Khan previously refused to ‘water down’ the ULEZ green tax expansion after he announced he was increasing grants for families to replace non-compliant older, larger cars with less polluting models to £2,000.

Despite his efforts to make the scheme more feasible for drivers during the cost of living crisis, Khan was criticised by Tories including Health Minister Maria Caulfield, who warned it would do little to help with the cost of a replacement.
