Did anyone see an armed response unit pull a car over on Tower Bridge Road at about 11.30pm on Fri just past Bermondsey Square (heading towards OKR)? My boyfriend and I were walking home and saw several police cars and a couple of vans, with armed police, kind of taking control of that bit of the road. It was... well... disconcerting, to say the least.

They have been cracking down on people not paying their road tax lately.

There seemed to be a lot of police around that night.
A van pulled over on Druid St around 8pm and stopped a group of young guys. It looked a bit serious. I kept on walking.

Armed response units chasing car tax? I doubt it.
