I confronted the ice cream seller on Wednesday morning, subsequently lodged a 'crime' with the Met Police, did the same on Friday as she was again parked on the bridge approach, blocking traffic lanes etc, she was there again on Sunday and Monday. I lodged another 'crime' with the police last night - and rang 101! They informed me that a parking offence was not a 'crime' and I should 'complain' to parking division of Tower Hamlets! I can only imagine what a waste of time that would be. On numerous occasions the blue Mercedes Ice Cream van is parked on Tower Bridge selling ice creams on a double red route and the authorities seem quite happy about it. Meanwhile they also seem more than happy to be heavy handed issuing parking tickets - recently to an ambulance - at the the drop of hat. Doesn't give you much faith in the system I'm afraid.
