TFL apologise for putting parking tickets on vehicles in the London Bridge attack area

Transport for London has apologised after motorists caught up in the London Bridge attack were issued tickets. 

People driving cars and motorcycles were forced to leave their vehicles behind as police descended on the area on Saturday evening. 

They were unable to retrieve their vehicles as a police cordon remained in place around the area of London Bridge and Borough Market, sealing it off. 

Once the cordon was lifted, some people found tickets on their cars and had been issued with parking fines. 

TFL have issued an apology for an "insensitive mistake" and have reassured motorists the fines will be cancelled. 

The attack resulted in the killing of eight people and the fatal shooting of the three attackers.
