Car idling engine with two people inside relaxing running AC

Sent to Westminster City Council less than a minute later

At around 6pm I saw two people in the vehicle lounging back (with seats reclining) while the engine was running. I tapped on the window and politely asked the driver to switch off the engine. He said he was hot and wanted to run the AC. I told him it was against Westminster regulations to idle engines, but he persisted. I took photos. When I returned to the same spot around 6:30pm, the car was still there with engine still running. The driver was standing outside the vehicle talking into his phone.
