• Charlie is of course right; the police will take no action without a registration number.

    This morning I received a letter from the Met's Westminster traffic division to say that no further action would be taken. Despite there being CCTV cameras in the area concerned, it seems that none were recording at the time.

    Given the particular circumstances of the case, the police decision to do nothing doesn't surprise me. What is telling about the letter which informs me of this decision is the following...

    [INDENT]"It is worth noting that CCTV cameras do not normally record registration numbers of vehicles and deal only with traffic flow."[/INDENT]
    Ah yes, "traffic flow", the holy mantra of London traffic planners and enforcers.
