In late December 2015 Dean parked his company car for about 15 minutes. We subsequently received a demand for excess parking charges. I will spare the detail but it was essentially one of those scams you will have heard about involving private and not local authority enforcement. After a bit of internet research Dean said, “ignore it they will go away”. We did but they didn’t. Subsequent communication saw the “fine” increase and the threats escalate. Even “case law” was cited. We continued to ignore them.

Eventually they issued in the County Court. Dean drafted a splendid defence and we had the matter transferred to Middlesbrough CC for a much-anticipated hearing next month.

Today they have discontinued. We are going to pass on all our materials and story to the websites we found helpful. It does however demonstrate the value of not giving into this sort of thing.
