Ulez vans are being used to ensure anyone driving a non-compliant car is paying a daily charge

A Ulez van was spotted with a sex toy attached to its camera as footage of the vehicle driving around Bexley went viral on social media.

Khan’s Ulez expansion, which was rolled out on August 29, has proved controversial with many Londoners voiced opposition to the move.


The video, which was posted on Facebook on November 20, shows the Ulez van travelling around South East London with a sex toy fixed in place.

The 10-second clip has received more than 1,500 shares and 2,000 reactions and is captioned: "The c*ck is heading to Bexley Village."

Ulez vans are being used to ensure anyone driving a non-compliant car is paying a daily charge of £12.50.

An automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system identifies vehicles which are required to pay.

Social media users commented on the video to share their thoughts on the "hilarious" incident.

One person said: "I can’t stop laughing."

Another added: "This is hilarious."

Anyone who drives within the zone with a non-compliant vehicle and fail to pay the daily fee are initially sent warning letters.

Figures released by the Metropolitan Police state that there were 510 crimes relating to ULEZ cameras reported between the start of April and the end of August.

Khan has previously warned people attacking cameras that “protest should be lawful, safe and peaceful”, adding: “It is really important to stay on the right side of the law.”

The mayor's expansion decision sparked concerns over its adverse impact on those on low-incomes and in the capital’s outer boroughs.

However, Khan stressed that he was “immensely proud” at how his administration has tackled the climate crisis through measures such as Ulez.

A spokesperson for the Mayor of London said: “The expanded Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will bring cleaner air to five million more people and will save lives and protect children’s lungs.

"The Mayor has always been clear that expanding the ULEZ was a difficult but necessary decision, and he listened closely to those with concerns. That’s why he expanded the scrappage scheme to ensure any Londoner affected is eligible to apply for thousands of pounds in help."
