Two arrested after Sidcup ULEZ camera explosion

Two men have been arrested by the met Police after a ULEZ camera in Sidcup was blown up.

The explosion damaged a nearby van leaving a substantial hole in its side as well as a house when it exploded at 6:45pm. Anyone walking nearby at the time – and given the time it’s lucky there wasn’t – would have been seriously injured or worse.

One man arrested today is from Sidcup with the other from Horsham.

The Met state:

“A 60-year-old man in Sidcup was arrested at approximately 06:10hrs on suspicion of conspiracy to cause an explosion likely to endanger life or property, contrary to section two of the Explosive Substances Act 1883.

“A 61-year-old man was also arrested in Horsham at approximately 06:15hrs, on suspicion of conspiracy to cause an explosion likely to endanger life or property, and criminal damage, contrary to section one of the Criminal Damage Act 1971.”

They are still asking for assistance and anyone with information can call 101 and quote CAD 5819/06DEC.
