Describing Mr Khan as “a little rat”, Mr Hardy added: “Have some of that, it’s people pissed off about the tyranny reigning over us and getting out and doing things about it – real votes, real boys here.”

His video showed that traffic light poles holding Ulez number plate recognition cameras had been cut in half, spray-painted and toppled to the ground in Ickenham, Northwood and other parts of the borough of Hillingdon.
