  1. Why don't you just bid for it when it is auctioned? If you can get it for around £2k then great, but if it starts going up towards £5k you can walk away.
  2. As I understand it, there is no appeals process in the same way as you have for a parking ticket. The FPN is an alternative to being prosecuted in court, so you either pay up or your mum goes to court and pleads not guilty.
  3. The signs are visible in the second photo. Streetview image here has them - no idea if they are legal/compliant. Hopefully someone will be able to give you a view on this. https://www.google.com/maps/@51.3189505,-0.5566913,3a,75y,231.82h,75.82t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sjxcVEfKu8raIHIQcUNfoEQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  4. The opt in/out boxes when you sign up on websites, typically relate to marketing material i.e. you are opting in/out to them contacting you with info of special offers, deals, etc. As I understand it, the company can still contact you about other matters and an email about their service, even if it is a survey from a third party, is allowed.
  5. If you're just after larger sizes, you could try the Jacamo site - it has up to 5XL
  6. Here maybe? https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.6857236,-3.934319,3a,75y,58.21h,86.31t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s3W4AeMvjrAw24uSadmeIDA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  7. You don't mention if anyone else has physical access to your PlayStation. While Fortnite is a free game, it does have in-game purchases and some of these match the amounts you mention. Given that Sony claim the transactions were from your machine, is it possible that someone else in your household has been playing the game and is responsible?
  8. I think the normal chargeback window is 120 days, so your bank may not be keen (or even unable) to help after more than a year.
  9. Presumably she got the 07:35 from Euston, with changes at Crewe and Chester, arriving Holyhead at 11:20. The sailing was at 11:50, but the Irish Ferries website states that check-in closes 30 minutes before departure, which would therefore fit with what you have now been told i.e. "Apparently train got into port same time as ferry gate closed." Sounds as though she was simply on the wrong train to catch that ferry, so unless she was advised to catch this particular train by Virgin or Irish ferries, I'm not you'll get very far with your complaint.
  10. Depending on you phone, you might to be able to get info of your whereabouts from that e.g. the Timeline section of the Google Maps app on my phone shows my movements on 26th (i drove to my local Sainsbury's).
  11. Different model and circumstances, but... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4845486/The-new-BMW-2-series-hot-forecourt.html
  12. Is there any chance you could convince a locksmith to change the locks for you? If you explain that you have no access to the property following your father's death (maybe omit to mention the step-daughter issue) and offer to provide your ID (driving licence/passport), they may be willing to change the locks for you.
  13. There's also a growing problem with claims relating to holidays ruined by sickness. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40348282
  14. I'm pretty sure that PO's banking services are routed via LINK, so a counter cash withdrawal is pretty much the same as an ATM withdrawal. Unless it's changed in recent years, LINK settlement s on the next working day, which is the same as Visa and Mastercard, so your bank account will be debited on the same day regardless of whether they put your payment through correctly or not. The only potential downside (I can think of) for you would be if you ever needed to go down the chargeback route for one of your purchases at this PO branch, as this would not be available to you if they'd processed the transaction as cash. Should they be doing this? Well, no they shouldn't, but they're not breaking any regulations per se, other than the internal ones they sign up to with the Post Office (your branch will most likely be a franchise). If you want to report them I'm sure you can find some "contact us" info on the main PO website, but it just sounds like they are a small business doing their best to maximise their revenue (albeit by being a bit sneaky).
