A man who destroyed a ULEZ camera and was caught by police carrying equipment to commit the offence has been sentenced.

Stephen Nunn, 60, of Corkscrew Hill, West Wickham, was sentenced yesterday at Bromley Magistrates’ Court to a 12-month community order, which includes 100 hours of unpaid work. He was also made to pay compensation of £349.

He previously pleaded guilty to criminal damage at the same court in November.

At around 10.20 pm on October 27, officers were on patrol in Hayes Road in Bromley when they spotted Nunn dressed in black and carrying a large metal pole with a can of spray paint attached to the top.

Officers then saw Nunn point the pole at a ULEZ camera before spraying it with white paint.

He was stopped nearby and arrested. Officers later searched his home where they found several anti-ULEZ posters.

A spokesman for the Met said: “The Met continues to treat criminal activity to ULEZ seriously and has deployed considerable resources to our operation.

“Where there are possible lines of enquiry, local investigators will follow up using a range of investigative approaches including CCTV trawls, witness searches and an assessment of forensic opportunities.”
