Operator Licence revoked for breach of London Emission zones

I act for the DVSA both in the Upper Tribunal on appeals from the Traffic Commissioner and at Public Inquiries. The case against Ebdon Tours and its 3 related companies was the first of it's type. Here the company  deliberately altered the vehicle exhaust  preventing in an attempt to run vehicles in London in breach of the London Emission Zone requirements. Having heard all the evidence the Traffic Commissioner decided to revoke all 4 licences.
