The Ilford Recorder report: 

Transport chiefs have netted an “obscene” £34,000 in five months after controversially fining drivers for performing U-turns at a Goodmayes junction.

Transport for London (TfL) started “enforcing” a ban on U-turns in January using CCTV at the junction of the A12 and Barley Lane.

For the first four weeks, drivers caught performing the manoeuvre were sent a warning notice saying fines were coming into force.
