  1. I've tried not to be bitter about it, but it really felt like they were law buddies and the case was decided before I even went in the room. It was a real shame, as the BW legal chap had not received my witness statement prior to our initial meeting, after I gave him a hard copy, you could hear him ranting and raving to his colleagues and the firm he was representing asking for better evidence, he read the statement while I was in the room and he was clearly squirming in his seat and after his whole manner seemed like he was fighting a losing case. That got my hopes u
  2. I lost in court, was a waste of a journey, really disappointed with the judge and the way he went about things. I barely had the chance to speak, when I did the opposition interrupted me, when they spoke their lies, if I said anything I was scolded. It was an absolute joke. The judge looked through their evidence and decided that they did not need evidence of where my car was parked to win the case, so the fact they only had a handful of pictures of my car in complete darkness, where you could bearly make out the car did not matter. Nor did the fact it was actual
  3. Excellent advice, thank you all so much. I will leave making the edits for a short while, just in case any more helpful information is given in this forum, then I will amend and upload the better version for you all to review. I cannot thank you enough for your help, I really do hope that I win the case and I would love if someone else could then one day use this thread and case as a basis for their defence against these parking pirates.
  4. Thanks for pointing that out, I have now correctly removed my name and car reg from the file and will upload in this post, so that the previous one can be deleted. ilovepdf_merged_(1).pdf
  5. Redacted and merged to one PDF Attached is my witness statement and supporting evidence that I am going to give to the court, the court have said they will not even look at it until the day of the hearing, so I am OK to send it to them only a few days before the hearing. Do you think it is worth me sending this to BW Legal, in the hope they will drop the case before it goes to court? Or am I better not showing my hand to them, so they cannot amend their evidence based on what I have stated? If anyone would be kind enough to read through my statement and giv

  7. Here is a PDF of the images. I have spoken with the court and they have said as the defendant I can only request to change the court location, but it may not be changed anyway. There is also a fee for me to apply to change the location of £255! car park location google earth pictures.pdf
  8. OK, I will do now. I did look to black out certain things, but I was not sure what I should and should not redact and there was nothing on there that was personal enough for me to be concerned with being made public. So I am happy for all to view, but if you are kind enough to redact what is needed as per the forum rules, that would be amazing. I was planning on collecting up other court cases they have lost, to refer to as part of my evidence, I'm not sure if this is worth doing or could just confuse matters? But there seem to be many where the judge has ru
  9. Thank you all so much for taking the time to comment and help, I really do appreciate it. Just to elaborate a bit more on the background, just because my lack of knowledge of the process might mean I've actually done things along the way that I did not know what they were and so hadn't mention it. When they decided to go to court, I was offered mediation, which I took. I offered to pay the reduced rate, just to make it go away, but insisted it was not an admission of guilt, it was a goodwill gesture to save us all the effort of court. They refused and wanted £250.
  10. I only received the documents in a few days, so I wanted to get some advice before I drafted one, just so the points in my defence were valid, as not to irritate the judge with things that are not relevant or helpful.
  11. OK, thank you. So in a nutshell, they are probably going to win by default, no matter how valid my points are with my defence. I have just found out they moved the court hearing to London, despite me living in the Southwest, so I am going to ask for it to be moved closer to where I live and the offence took place, maybe I can then have time to file my witness statement?
  12. I do not know enough about what I should or should not be doing, so apologies if I have done things wrong. I could not see anything that I did not mind being in a public space in the upload, which is why I did not remove anything. I was not invited or told to file a witness statement, I have simply been told I have a court hearing and the details of their defence.

  14. Hi On the 16th December I am due in the small claims court to defend myself against in my opinion, an unfairly issued parking charge invoice issued by a private parking firm. I'll give as much detail as I can, in the hope someone would be kind enough to give me some advice and confirm if my planned defence is likely to succeed or could be improved. The claimant is KBT Cornwall Limited, trading as Armtrac Security Services, being represented by BW Legal in court. The alleged offence took place on 19/08/18 and was for breach of their car park contract terms
