Parking fines cancelled for motorists ticketed after London terror attack

The fines can be up to £130.

Transport for London has apologised for issuing parking fines to motorists who had to abandon their cars following the terror attack at London Bridge.

The operator said sorry for its “insensitive mistake” after penalty charge notices were handed out in Borough High Street when the police cordon was reduced on Wednesday morning.

A notice was visible on the windscreen of an Audi car on the street this afternoon.

The fines, which can be up to £130, will be cancelled, a TfL spokesman said.

He said: “We unreservedly apologise for our insensitive mistake. These fines should never have been issued and will all be immediately cancelled.”

It is understood there will be wardens in the area for the rest of the week but no cars that have been parked within the police cordon will be fined.
