Council left red faced by parking ticket error


Warwickshire County Council have owned up to an embarrassing computer glitch which saw a Stratford resident issued with repeated demands to pay a parking fine of £0.00.

Robert Fradley, of Seymour Road, originally received a warning ticket after accidentally parking in a loading bay on High Street.

In addition to the original warning ticket, which came with no fine, Mr Fradley received letters demanding he pay his £0.00 fine, even warning him that the matter could proceed to court.
