    • Well, you've highlighted the problem yourself, whatever you decide will carry some risk.   However, I would think the risk of a default judgement & CCJ is to be avoided at all costs and the least worse thing would be to write them a two-line letter with their reference number and your new address.   As usual, any details you can give us on the forum sticky would be useful for the future

    • OK, I found the letter I was looking for:     Dear Sir/Madam,   Reference: [order number]   On [date], I placed an order for a [item] and it was delivered by you on [date].   I have discovered that the [item] has the following problem: [give details].   The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described, of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.    Any returns policy that says I have to cover the cost of returning items must only relate to the situation where I change my mind about the item ordered and not where there is a problem with the item.    I should not lose out financially as a result of your breach of contract and accordingly all costs of returning the item should be met by you.    I also require you to confirm you will arrange for [the item] to be collected.   I look forward to hearing from you.   Yours faithfully, [Your name]

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

I got my first ever parking ticket yesterday!


Sadly I am not optimistic as it was in a proper council car park and not a PPC.


I actually bought a valid ticket and displayed it on my dashboard, but as I was in a rush I think when I closed the car door I annoyingly didn't check and the ticket must have blown over to its other side from the force of closing the door, as this is how it was when I got back to the car later. The warden even saw me buy the ticket and put it on my dashboard but obviously went and checked when I'd gone.


There is an inconsistency though and I was wondering if it would be enough to make it unenforceable?


My car is very clearly green, but on the PCN the colour is marked as "grey". All other details are correct though, i.e. location, car make and number plate, so I'm resigned to having to pay. Thought I'd check with you guys anyway just in case.


Thanks in advance for your help.

The colour of the vehicle is not a requirement for a PCN. However if that information is wrong then other details may be wrong as well.


I would post up a copy of the PCN so it can be checked for anything that may give you an out.


Councils are supposed to use their discretion and have been known to cancel PCN's in circumstances such as yours.


I would write to them explaining what you think happened, enclose a copy of your P&D ticket and ask them to use their discretion and cancel the PCN.


This does not constitute legal advice and is not represented as a substitute for legal advice from an appropriately qualified person or firm.

I think it would be worth writing to the council and show them the ticket (or a copy of it) and explain why it was not on display. You obviously paid to park and they would probably accept your explanation. The same thing happened to me years ago and the council dropped the fine.

Good luck.

My local authoriy used to throw out any case where the colour was clearly wrong. If it was a grey-green car, they would enforce, but if it was bright green, they would cancel in a situation like this.


I would appeal it as suggested above, but round off with a sentence saying you also challenge the validity of the PCN. There's no harm in trying it in addition to explaining the circumstances, although I would not rely on the colour issue alone.

Problem is that the penalty is not for not having a vaild ticket, it is for not correctly displaying one.


Colour - Grey is the very next colour to green on their ticket issuing machine. Probably hit the wrong one. I very much doubt if you will get off it, but it is incorrect.

The car is a dark green, could be confused for black or blue but definitely not grey. Still, it was 10am so no excuses for consusing the colour! Thanks wheelergeezer, yeah I thought that was the most likely thing they must have done by accident.


I will put up an image of the PCN when I can find it again under my heap of more important paperwork!
