    • Thank you for the summary you have given. I think you will need to commission a fully detailed point by point report which identifies the issues, the cause of the issues and then separately a quotation for resolving them. I think you need two quotations – comparative. Do you know the name of the person who owns TB plastering? Do you know their address? Do you know they have any assets? It sounds to me as if it's going to be quite an expensive job. On the basis of what you say, if you bring a legal action then you will have no difficulty getting a judgement in your favour the problem will be enforcing the judgement. What address do they use on their bill? You need to have a look at the land registry web check service for about three quid check to see who the owner of a particular property is. Of course you could simply wait until they decide to sue you and then bring a counterclaim but there is a big chance that they won't bother to sue and so it may be down to you to take your own action to undo the mess they have made. Come back here when you have found this out

    • The first thing is to let the surgery know that you didn't enter your car registrtaion when you visited and ask them to confirm to Euro that you were a patient on that day and Euro should cancel. The quicker you do that before matters escalate, the more lkely that they will cancel. You could suggest that  they put up a sign reminding drivers to enter their vrm. thank you for posting the whole of the PCN which confirms that it does not comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 Schedule 4 Section 9 in two ways. [2][e] of S9 states (e)state that the creditor does not know both the name of the driver and a current address for service for the driver and invite the keeper— (i)to pay the unpaid parking charges; Your PCN does not. All it does is to ask the driver to pay which is not enough. In addition under [2][a] the PCN should specify the period of parking. Instead it gives the arrival and departure times of the car as it passes the ANPR cameras which is not the same. That means that you as keeper are not liable to pay the PCN only the driver is now liable. Courts do not accept that the keeper and the driver are the same person so proving who was driving will be difficult for Euro.
    • Pro peace/anti war/anti-atrocity marches which included many Jewish protestors carrying banners (as previously linked)  decrying the atrocities of Israel and the IDF such as 'Not in my name' 'Never again to ANY people'   Although a very small handful of unconscionable Hamas supporters were among the many MANY thousands of pro peace protestors, even they displayed nothing like the hatred and violence demonstrated by the 100 or so far right rabble who attacked police, tried to attack the peaceful protestors and then attempted to violently breach the cenotaph itself. The pro peace/end atrocities in Palestine protests have remained largely peaceful despite ongoing atrocities by the state of Israel and the IDF.   Even today, unarmed starving civilians in a supposedly safe camp in Gaza were murdered by shelling and bombing from afar by Israeli forces, while violent Israeli settlers have forcefully deposed more Palestians from their homes and lands on the west bank with the aide and support of Israeli military forces - just as the Israeli forces are forcibly relocating civilians in Gaza with even more horrors, atrocities and violence. These atrocities by the IDF in Gaza include starvation, forced relocation, bombing homes, health centers and refugee camps, denying food water and medical support, murdering journalists and health workers and the mass murder of women and children  .. are growing alarmingly and horribly reminiscent of some of the similar but wider scale utterly monstrous genocidal atrocities by Nazis on the Jewish people, which makes these actions by Israel and the IDF even more unconscionable and deplorable.  
    • Hi all, I was wondering what peoples thoughts / advice is for my following situation. Unfortunately, I have been caught speeding on the m6 - 56mph in a temporary 40 zone. I did not realise that the speed for the current stretch I was on, was reduced to a 40, I knew that some parts was bought down to 50mph but not 40. Ultimately, it is on own fault for not being more focused at the time.  I was wondering whether anyone caught doing similar speeds over the limit have been offered a speed awareness course. My letter states that the records show I have not met the criteria for a speed awareness course, which I feel is harsh given this is my first offence & the threshold for consideration is upto 53mph as stated below, our speed narrowly exceeded the limit and falls within the guidelines set out by the National Police Chief Council (NPCC) up to: 31 mph in a 20 mph area 42 mph in a 30 mph area 53 mph in a 40 mph area. Could I argue that my speedometer is not entirely accurate as such I should be considered in the 53mph bracket above and considered for a speed awareness course?

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

Booked a holiday in October for 5 of us going to Turkey though Sunshine.co.uk, Goltrail were the flight operator. Got to the airport were told we were not on the flight manafest so we were not allowed on the plane. I had all my paperwork and flight tickets and we were just left standing there at 11pm and told to phone the helpline when it opened the next day at 10am. I was left in the airport with my husband, a baby, a disabled child and a pensioner with a heart condition and they done nothing to help us. We were refunded for the holiday and they have offered to pay the overnight stay we had in the airport hotel, wow,but I didnt get what I paid for and they offered a £20 ex gratia payment. Abta have said they cant do anything but I can go to arbitration, I have also been onto avaition authority? they said the same. Any ideas? Surely they cant be allowed to do that to people.

You need to put more detail on , so that people will know who is at fault and give better advice. Why not allowed on the plane, was it overbooked. Did sunshine arrange the whole holiday or just the flight. Sunshine are just agents from what I know. When did you book and pay for the holiday, last minute three or four months prior to departure. etc etc.

Sorry this is all new to me!


Booked holiday about 4 or 5 weeks before departure.

Booked online through Sunshine.co.uk, flights accomodation and transfers, paid in full at the time with a debit card and got confirmation email.

Goldtrail were the flight operator for the holiday I purchased and they sent e-tickets to Sunshine who then passed them to me about a week or 2 later.

Went to check in at airport 2.5hrs before take off and were told there were no seats together they said george and sacha , my husband and daughter ,were together then couldnt find anyone else. They asked us to wait at the side and they called Manchester office then said we were not on the flight manifest so we couldnt board the plane. I said but we have tickets, she said that means nothing. A woman from thomas cook tried to help and I even let her log into my sunshine account and she agreed everything was in order and from what she could see I hadnt done anything wrong. We tried calling Goldtrail and were second in the queue for 2hrs. We were told we could buy more seats £135 1 way each, I said how will we get back, they said you should have it sorted out by then. Anyway there were only 2 spare seats (george and sacha's?)thats a bit strange I thought, so we couldnt go as we need 4 seats. With no answer at goldtrail we had to phone sunshine at 10am the next morning. We booked into the airport hotel at our expense and caled the next day. They couldnt explain what had happened and had never heard anything like it. They phoned goldtrail and they didnt know either. 1.5hrs later they offered us a flight on the Sunday, 2 days later. This was no good as we had to be back at work and my daughter didnt have enough medication with her for another 2 days( her meds are liquid and I had a letter to carry an exact amout on board the plane, so I didnt have any spare). They couldnt offer us any other holiday as they were not a sales team, simply adminand didnt want to suggest anything incase it wasnt good, so we got refunded and told to hang on to receipts for any exra expenses we had as a result of this. We then went into the trave agent in the airport and got a flight an hour later to Portugal, we didnt want to go there but my dughter was excited about a holiday and couldnt understand why we didnt go on the plane.

What was more disappointing was that we were going out so see my sister wo lives in turkey and she hadnt seen my baby yet. We also had more friends that has booked 2 days before departure date and they were away on the plane.

It took goldtrail untill 14th of December to answer my complaint and they offered to pay for extra expenses and an ex gratia payment of £20 each totaling £60, I paid for 4 full priced flights, there was no discount for my 9 year olds flight. They said it was unforseeable and couldnt have been avoided and it was there final offer. I went back and said it was an insult and they obviously hadnt read my complaint properly, they just went on about valued customers etc and I said I certainly didnt feel valued and it hadnt restored my faith in them. They then came back another 3 to 4 weeks later and said they would up it to £70 each, £210, I still dont feel thats right. Can anyone suggest what I should do next?

So the problem is with goldtrail and not sunshine. It appears sunshine did their job correctly. If I were you, I would write a letter before action to Goldtrial. You will have to decide what sum you would be satisfied with. Take account of factors such as missing the holiday with your friends - your other friends who live in Turkey as well. The stress that you went through at the airport etc ,etc. If you had booked and paid for yuour accommodation seperately ask for that to be refuded as well. So what I would be looking for is for a total of flight refund, accommodation in Turkey refunded, airport hotel accom refunded, the extra meals required until you flew out refunded and whatever price you put on your original holiday being ruined. DO NOT send the letter unless you intend to follow it through by issuing a County Court Summons if they do not settle your claim. Have a read of the thread Honeymoon?holiday ruined - by sexyfufu. There is very good advice in that thread.
