Regarding a Traffic Offence Report. The officer issuing the ticket has clearly ticked the wrong Issuing Force box i.e. Devon and Cornwall force and not Dorset force. Will this be relevant if I challenge the ticket?

Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?

Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.
