I was charged with driving in London’s ULEZ while my licensed lorry was in the back of a recovery lorry.

A VAN owner was charged for driving in a low-emissions area – when his Ford Transit was in the back of a recovery truck.

And when Djamel Djema, 49, complained he still had to pay because his vehicle was technically moving.

The father of three broke his white van when a car crashed into it.

Twelve days later, he ordered a recovery truck to take it away.

But a few hours after it was picked up, he received a notification saying he had driven past London’s ultra-low emission zone and charged £12.50.

Photographic evidence taken by an automated ULEZ camera – where his license plate was obtained – even shows it in the back of the recovery truck.

Mr Djema said he had phoned London’s Department of Transport to point out the error but asked a call handler to tell him he still had to pay the fee.

The shop owner from Vauxhall, South London said: “It’s ridiculous.

“They could clearly see it lying on the back of a truck.

“I don’t know what they’re thinking.”

TfL confirmed that they refunded Djema when he was contacted.

Mr Djema said:'It's ridiculous. They could clearly see it was on the back of a truck'
