    • British Retail Consortium says prices of staple items will go up 'substantially' if there is no deal.   https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/jul/10/no-deal-brexit-will-raise-cost-of-uk-household-staples-say-retailers
    • Well done! This is more than likely the end of it, but you should check with the court at some stage that they've officially discontinued.   They can still chase you for the debt, and they might, but you can just ignore. If they were to issue proceedings again, you can refer to this case in your submissions - it won't reflect very well on them if their case is similar to this time. The chances of them trying again are probably slim though.

    • Update!!!    Email received from solicitors (well I was cc'd in on an email to the Court)   Notice of Discontinuance,   Does this mean it's a "Success" and no more to be heard?   Or potentially they could find the correct paperwork and start a new claim?   But, for the moment, I am happy.   Thanks for the help and guidance on this thread.
    • Hi All, newbie here, hope I'm doing this correctly.   Two years ago the wife was using my car and bought a ticket in a train station car park and displayed it on the dashboard. She returned to find a parking charge notice from Excel. It was a very windy day and it had evidently been blown on the the floor of the car as she left. It did not have a self adhesive part to stick to the window. I subsequently followed their online claim procedure and sent a copy of the ticket but the claim was refused. A couple of days ago I received the County Court Business Centre claim form in the post after presuming it would go away after not hearing from them for about a year (the usual threatening letters from debt recovery companies etc).   I wish I had paid the original £20 as this has been a big worry and hassle, but I just ignored most of the letters after reading stuff online. Obviously I want to dispute the whole of the claim but do I have a decent defence? I would cite the fact that the only reason the ticket was not displayed was that it could not be stuck to the window.   Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.   Name of the Claimant : Excel Parking Services   Claimants Solicitors: Unknown   Date of issue – 08 July 2020   Date for AOS - 27 July 2020?   Date to submit Defence - 10 August?       What is the claim for – Breach of contract - parked without clearly displaying a valid parking ticket in Brewery St car park, Chesterfield on 02.07. 2018. Defendant has failed to settle the outstanding liability and Claimant seeks recovery of of the parking charge notice, costs and interest       What is the value of the claim? £185.00

    • 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'm having some trouble at work with parking. There are about 300 spaces for over 500 cars, and so the cars have to go somewhere.

 

We are on an industrial estate, with a long straight road behind our building, and a short access road onto an A-type road at the front. The facilities management team keep sending out messages saying that cars will be towed by police unless we move them.

 

Do they have any right to tow your car if it is parked on a road with no yellow lines, with no signs stating that you can't park there, and it is not obstructing anything?

 

Also, if you are parked outwith a parking space, but still within the car park, not obstructing anything, again with no yellow lines or signs stating that you cant, can they tow your car?

 

Thanks :)

On private land - road markings (DYL's) have no legal basis. To comply with the Private Security Industry Act and existing case law there must signage stating that clamping/towing/blocking in will take place. Anyone performing these actions must be licensed by the SIA.

 

If they comply with the above then yes they can tow your car. If they were to do tow your car without the above being in place then you would have grounds to sue them.

 

You should check with local council about whether the roads have been adopted by them and where the demarkation point is. If the roads have been adopted then restrictions can be put in place but must have the necessary documentation (Traffic Regulation Order, TRO) and road markings must comply with the Traffic and Road Signs - General Directions.

 

AIUI the Police would only tow your vehicle if it was preventing access from the property (e.g. parked across an entrance). Even then they are sometimes reluctant to act.

 

Sounds like your facilities people are trying to dissuade you from parking without any legal basis.
