Now the London Paper has an article about the Islington Council / TfL parking bust up I mentioned on Tuesday:
Shoppers in Islington cheered as they witnessed a parking warden’s van being towed away by a clamper.
They watched on in delight as the Islington council van – which had stopped in a bus bay – was hoisted into the air by a TfL tow truck.
The incident took place on Upper Street, in Islington, north London. One witness said: “It was amusing. People were shouting ‘Go on my son’.”
But a TfL spokesman said: “The van actually broke down and was being recovered by the truck because both work out of the same depot.”
