Yes, it was not a parking ticket though, It was a penalty charge notice for "failed to comply with a no entry sign" for a rented car.
The reason why I did not pay is because I had contacted them after reducing the fine and they had not issued a new invoice. Meaning that when I logged in to Red Route (to pay online) it was still £130 and not the reduced £65 and they asked me to wait for an invoice to be issued.
While contacting them on the phone, they did ask me to wait for a new invoice. I did call them several times, and last time I was told that it was permanently on hold, even the representative was confused. So I did not follow it up.
How about the fact that the council misrepresented and forcefully took money from someone else (Misrepresentation Act 1967)? How about the fact that the police helped them in doing that? They had no right to take money from my ex landlady. She did not choose to pay, she was forced to, as she was told if she does not pay, they would enter and take jewelry or anything that can recover the cost. Is my chance of winning still slim? Did they have the right to do all that?
This still does not explain the police action. They gave a wrong advise and helped in an unlawful action. According to the law, the bailiffs had no right to threaten her to take her property and threaten her to pay. The police assisted them in doing so. She has an eye witness as well.
Are you saying that the police can not be sued for their wrong doing?
