Actor turned political activist Laurence Fox has been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit criminal damage to ULEZ cameras.
Fox, who is the leader of the Reclaim Party, said in a social media video shared earlier today that his home was being searched by police officers.
Just before 10.45am, the party posted on X, formerly Twitter, saying: “Live now @LozzaFox is having his house searched by the police.”
The post was accompanied by a video of Fox, sitting on his sofa addressing the camera, seemingly with police officers around him.
In the short clip, he says: “Look how many coppers there are around my house.”
In another video of Fox at his house, also shared to X, he criticises moves to what he called a “surveillance state”.
In a statement, a police spokesperson said: “On Wednesday 4 October officers arrested a 45-year-old man on suspicion of conspiring to commit criminal damage to ULEZ cameras and encouraging or assisting offences to be committed.
“He was arrested in Stockwell and has been taken to a South London police station where he remains in custody.”
