    • Hi,   I sent the email to both my local councillor and the leader of my local council yesterday evening. I didn't receive an acknowledgement email. Do you know if I should have, as I know that if you ever email an MP you always receive a acknowledgement email?   Walshy
    • Can I ask how your taking him to court with just his a trade name ?  Yes I notice hes still trading on ebay.   
    • Very good finds indeed which help to undermine their case.. And to strengthen your case take a look  look at a thread by Tom Price also at Southend airport which is several threads below yours and you will see that he won his case on the fact that he was stopped rather than parked. On top of that he had the Airports Act  1986 to quote. The relevant section is no 63 " Byelaws are covered at S.63  (2)Any such byelaws may, in particular, include byelaws— (d)for regulating vehicular traffic anywhere within the airport, except on roads within the airport to which the road traffic enactments apply, and in particular (with that exception) for imposing speed limits on vehicles within the airport and for restricting or regulating the parking of vehicles or their use for any purpose or in any manner specified in the byelaws;" That confirms that the roads at the airport are either covered by the Road Traffic Act or Byelaws neither of which is relevant land therefore  PoFA cannot apply. And  VCS should be aware of that. Another thing is that when you posted their WS you didn't include their contract which I missed at the time. However Tom Price included it in his. And guess what-the  alleged offence they are pursuing you for, No Stopping, is not included in their contract. If you look at the end of their Service Agreement [aka contract] you will a list of contravention on Scedule 1 [7] (46) PARKING/WAITING ON A ROADWAY WHERE STOPPING IS PROHIBITTED That is the nearest to what you did. But you were not parking nor waiting -you were stopped so there was no reason to issue you with a PCN as you never broke any of their contraventions. Looks like they breached your GDPR and you should include that as it carries a hefty charge £750 is not unheard of.   Have a read of his WS too which may give you further ideas even possibly to rebut some of the points VCS  make.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

Well, some very 'emotive' and some 'strong' and descriptive wording here ...


biting staff members necks


Erm, just on this point? If, as you say, this is so serious ... outrageous TBH, that no one has ever caught them out before, yet apparently so prolific and been going on for so long, ... if, as you claim, he has bitten staff members necks, there would be some traces left to be physically matched with him ... why has this not been reported to the police, who would then have probably carried out an examination eg forensic on the wound ... biting someone on the neck is going to leave some residue, particularly from his teeth. This is not CSI BTW, but a simple swab of the 'bite mark' if there was one, even if not, it's hard to see how nothing would be left on their necks would provide evidence. Or wouldn't you think so?


I don't disbelieve you, but that above alone would be 'proof' ...

Have you also thought of using a mobile phone camera? Can easily be held, inside your hand, lens facing his or that way each time something happens. Just some ideas.

Anything else you'd like to share with us:grin:


I'm not trying to take way from the seriousness of the thread by the way.


Don't wait for your employer to act. Go straight to the police.

hi everyone and hope you call give me some advice.



i work in the catering industry and had a new manager appointed approx 9 month ago.


to cut along story short he first started out being very touchy feely with the staff then it progressed to undoing of womens bras. biting staff members necks ,massaging shoulders ,kissing on the lips.sticking his tongue in a 60 year old womans ear, pushing us up againts tables and dry humping etc, as you can imagine this is pretty gross.


my self and many others are single parents


The dirty, grubby little git.


Go straight to the police, this is beyond an employment issue, it is criminal behaviour.


If this turd walked down a street doing this he would be locked up straight away.

As I have remarked before & say again & as weird now suggests go to the police cos it doesn't appear as if the employer is taking your complaints seriously enough.


After receiving such a serious compliant particularly when from more than one source they should have suspended this guy with immediate effect until they could investigate. To permit him to still have contact & more importantly control over his victims, alleged or otherwise, is disgraceful & beyond the pale............Not only that they are laying the themselves open to being sued by this guys victims for failing to act thereby contributing to his victims anxieties & stress.

no the police were not involved but that was our next step if the company didnt do anything to sort out the problem,looking back we should have contacted the police first, if it happens again then we would.

I'm sorry & whilst it's great YOU & your workmates have been saved from this perv I can't help thinking that unless this creep is brought to book by the law he's just going to carry on doing what he does to others.


Therefore may I suggest nay ask that you & your friends report this guy to the police anyway in order to protect others............... Also a successful prosecution won't do any claim for compensation harm. In this I'm thinking of your friend who's off sick with stress

Agree, report him to the cops stop him doing to others what he did to you.


Please remember our troops, fighting and dying in our name. God protect them.
