  1. I understand what you're saying, but someone messed up somewhere in my case. Had I known that anything like this would happen, I would definitely have taken more recent photos. I do hope that someone took pictures at the time of seizure as well - if anything, it would help my complaint. Yes, when it was taken, it was on a public road. My friend had to drive quite a ways out of town to get it from an autorepair/storage garage in Fillongley.
  2. The car was parked in front of my friend's house when they found it. By garage, I meant the garage where they put the car afterwards and where it was retrieved from.
  3. Unfortunately my legal cover won't extend to this, but they have reiterated what several of you have said and what I'm going to do next - send off a letter for claim to both the council and Newlyn. I'm coming back in a few days, so will finally get to see the damage in person and get some quotes. Hopefully it won't come to actually going to court, but I'm quite a tenacious person. Thank you all for your advice so far! I'll post updates as to how I get on.
  4. Well, I have photographs and witnesses who can attest to the condition of the car when they last saw it, so hopefully that is enough!

  6. Yeah, the main point is the damage. I have photos of the car before the seizure and after and the damage is all the result of the car being towed away.
  7. I'll keep trying to get through to them! I've been trying for the past few days, but I think the holiday season is interfering with things. I would expect that they would have some sort of professional responsibility to double check before towing away a vehicle... I was able to submit the necessary documents via email and had thankfully left the key with the friend minding it - just had to sort out all the arrangements with the garage and friends.
  8. Hi all, hope you can shed some insight into this situation for me! I'm currently abroad on holiday but received word from a friend minding my car that it had been seized by Newlyns in regards to a previous owner's fines. I've thankfully managed to have it released and it's currently at a friend's. I don't understand why they seized the vehicle, as when they encountered it, it was already in my name (i.e. I was the registered keeper) according to the DVLA. To the best of my knowledge, the registered keeper is the one responsible for any tickets, fines, etc., not the owner (unl
