A London traffic warden has gone viral for slapping a parking ticket on a Tommy Robinson supporters’ bus – and clearly taking great pleasure in doing so.
The warden issued the ticket to the bus as it was parked outside London’s Old Bailey courthouse on Friday morning. He received cheers when he put the ticket on the bus windscreen, but was booed by Robinson’s fans as he walked away.
The parking warden smiled at the hecklers, giving them a thumbs up as he walked away laughing. “Oh, I do love my job sometimes,” he said.

Robinson, the former English Defence League leader, was found guilty of contempt of court for filming defendants in a Leeds criminal trial and posting footage on social media in breach of a reporting ban. He is due to be sentenced next week.
The bus had been used as a stage by his supporters during the day, and Robinson even climbed on board to give a speech after his hearing. The fine is £130, but is reduced to £70 if paid within 14 days.
