  1. Thankyou everybody for all of your thoughts/advice. Will have a good read up on the Acas info and ask her to print off the family friendly policy from work- will keep this post updated.
  2. Hi everybody:-) My mum has worked in a hospital dept for 22 years. In January her and her colleagues were asked to volunteer to do nights. Nobody else was interested but my mum volunteered to help them out and also to be able to spend more time with my dad who is disabled. She trained people up from medical records whose jobs had been taken away and so were classed as "at risk". She was informed this morning that she would have to go back onto days in July as the people from medical records were working nights so she wouldn't be needed. My mum is really upset about this as it
  3. Tried to pm you esmerobbo but your inbox is full!! Bit more detail - Their solictor introduced herself and said we agree that penalties are unenforceable by law. She asked if I had filed a defence as they didn't have a copy and that she would recommend to the judge that no defence had been filed. I told her I was relying on the defence that had already been submitted- the only difference was some parts related to the registered keeper not being the driver- the points of law were the same. She said she would oppose this to the judge and then asked me about other parts of my defence. I
  4. Hi dx100uk- did have a thread for HFC- there was PPI and charges and we went through the FOS- the PPI was paid back onto the outstanding balance and he got the interest back!! They have got a charging order we're paying back monthly (the same amount we were paying on the debt management plan) so they haven't gained any extra money- just got security on it now!
  5. Oh well back from court and lost the case:-( The judge said as they produced evidence of their losses ie the employment of staff, stationary etc etc judgement was for the claimant. On the plus side their solicitor asked for all sorts of silly costs like a witness expense, petrol and parking fees and the judge said no!! Absolutely gutted and to top it all off come outside and my dad had a parking ticket!! Thankyou to all who have supported especially Alexis and Esmerobbo- I'd have been lost without you both:-)
  6. Being a bit cagey here but don't want prying eyes guessing who I am before court!! Basically their solicitor and the judge didn't believe he didn't know who was driving- the evidence proving my partner wasn't driving couldn't be submitted as it wasn't signed in front of the court. I know he didn't have to name the driver but my partner pooped himself and squealed!! Service was dispensed with as the driver was at the court:wink: so that's where it's up to.
  7. Court again soon- judge made him name the driver:!: I take it the argument now is, if they are going down the trespass route, they can only claim for damages? Just hope it's not the same judge again cos he ain't gonna be pleased that we wasted time by not naming the driver straight away!
  8. Cheers surfer01 Sailor Sam the local paper aren't interested as somebody else has already informed them of what's going on and they don't want to know DBC- it's them that are saying it's a penalty- in their little yellow envelopes and their board of governers meetings!! We all know private co's can't charge penalties:-D
  9. Got court hearing soon!!! The judge has recommended mediation and Trethowans have agreed so that is going ahead real soon:wink: -was going to suggest we'd pay the £25 penalty if they pay our costs- it's a compromise isn't it!!
  10. I knew I shouldn't have stopped and let that fat fecker on!!!
  11. Thanks esmerobbo- (replied to pm:wink:) They are saying it's not for breach of contract it's for parking in a forbidden bay!! They just contradict themselves over and over again!!
  12. Does anybody know of any cases where they have sued the Rk instead of the driver that I could write in the defence? Have received their witness statement- ha haha is all I can say- will give more details after hearing!!
  13. Thanks Conniff - they are saying it's stated in their T&Cs that if you order an electrical part they will only refund us a credit note- their T&Cs are nowhere on their site when you order and when this was pointed out to them they told us they would send us a copy!! On the website that we found them thru their FAQs state if the part doesn't work they should offer a refund and if they refuse you can open a dispute- this has been done but they're still insisting no refund- we need that money to sort the car out and get it back on the road:-( Thanks for that info- will have a lo
  14. Hi Graham- it wasn't programmed specifically for our car- it was just for the same year car. Does this make any difference?? The part that they sent had a piece of plastic missing out of the key chip so was in my mind was faulty. Space cadet- when you say it wasn't programmed to our car- is that where you press your lock/unlock button on key while in position 2 on ignition- we did all that and it still had the original fault plus an immobiliser fault too. I just can't believe they can send you a part with a 30 day guarantee then won't refund your money if you send it back as not
  15. Has anybody got any ideas on what to write in defence? Got some great stuff off Al27 about penalties etc but wanted something relating to them suing the RK and not the driver. Who was it they lost in court with- was it daveyweir? Thanks guys:wink:
  16. Phoned breakeryard.com and they said they were going to sort out a refund. JST have sent an e-mail today which read: "You will not be getting a refund!!" Obviously we don't want a credit note from this co- is there anything in the distance selling regs for buying a used part? Or do we have any come back at all- their T&Cs aren't on the site when you order but they have kindly said they will send us a copy!
  17. Hi space cadet:-) They sent the ECU, transponder and the chip to put in our key- the chip was damaged- it had a piece of plastic missing and we could see copper inside!! Just want the money back now as our car is still off the road. They're saying if you order electrical parts that don't work they will replace or give a credit note- it's in their T&Cs- which aren't available unless you ask for them:???: Surely this can't be right- they could send out any old tat but would still either have the money or the customer would have to spend their credit note there???? Win win for them
  18. Hi everybody:-) Had loads of problems with our car (astra) and we were advised it could be the ECU that was faulty. Went through Breakeryard and were advised a co in Sheffield JST used spares had a reconditioned ECU with a 30 day guarantee. (The ECU tells you where there is a fault on your car) Waited 5 days ( on a next day delivery!!) and the part came. Fitted it onto car and it added another fault- something to do with the immobiliser:???: Phoned JST and they told us to send it back and they would give us a credit note!!!! We have phoned Breakeryard (who JST sell their parts throug
  19. Judge granted set-aside:-D full defence done!!! Just have to wait for court date now. Thankyou everybody esp Al27 and esmerobbo- couldn't have done that defence without your support and advice:-)
  20. Went today armed with camera- got photos of signs which can't be read even by zooming in. Got a photo of the middle entrance sign as we were driving past- needless to say it's impossible to see what it says as your driving. I'm sure the signs have been changed cos they did seem a lot higher up- prob about 8-9 feet from floor!! Got pics of their work vehicles parked in junction box, double yellows and totally blocking the highway- they can't have 1 rule for them can they - preaching to people about parking properly whilst there own workforce don't adhere to their rules?? More pics of
  21. Hi Notts_Phil- he's got the hearing date in Feb should it not be resolved by mediation- many people have helped already but I've a feeling I'm going to need a lot more!! Esmerobbo and DBC- just read the post on pepipoo- feel slightly more relieved now!! Just need to start getting everything together- Liverpool CC will be sick of us- 2 tickets from Trethowans!!!
  22. I've never noticed any signs before the ticket but there are some as you drive in past the taxi rank- how the hell you're supposed to read them whilst driving and having 10 cars up your bum I don't know. Gonna drop my mum off on Wednesday armed with my camera!!
  23. Finally received a letter from court to say they are recommending a mediation service and the claimant wishes to attempt mediation- does he have to go for this- I don't see the point in it as they know he wasn't driving but have still pressed ahead with court proceedings- are they really going to listen now?
