The vehicle was spotted by Independent councillor, James Giles, who reported it to the council and officers went to inspect if it was illegally parked.

They later issued a ticket as it sat on Cambridge Road.

The councillor, James Giles, says he has written to the Mayor of London to urge him to “instruct ULEZ vans to stop parking illegally.”

James said; “whatever your views on ULEZ, it is entirely inappropriate and unacceptable for enforcement vans to be illegally parking on Kingston’s streets. Today, a mobile camera van was illegally parked on the Cambridge Road in Norbiton. I requested one of Kingston’s parking officers come out to inspect and issue a penalty notice. This was done swiftly. I have written to the Mayor to urge him to instruct ULEZ vans to stop parking illegally in Kingston borough.”

A similar situation happened in Sidcup last month where a ULEZ van driver was handed a ticket after being reported by a member of the public.

A Transport for London spokesperson said they would “remind drivers of their responsibilities”.
