    • And as for “what if I get sick the last week” (or those last three days)......   well, you’d get sick pay. Would you go into your new workplace?   HMRC may not be bothered by 2 overlapping jobs of course, but if NHS CFS (counter fraud And security) noticed that either: a) you were claiming over-lapping sick pay for 2 jobs, or b) you were claiming sick pay for one job while well enough to turn in for the other: expect them to view at least one of the sick pay claims as fraudulent!   if you annoy your “difficult” manager : they might be difficult enough to highlight it for the local NHS CF specialist
    • Hello, Can someone advise if the attached is a valid charge please?  I had parked in the car park and paid but then got delayed and have ended up with a ticket for parking longer than I should have done.   I know they will refuse the appeal but is this charge enforceable?   Charge Notice.pdf
    • The dealer is called Carwise in Epping. It's not the most established of premises. When i was there i'd say there was about 10-15 cars inside and an office. I've seen these reviews of them which seem to replicate my experience. https://www.cardealerreviews.co.uk/dealership/hr-autos-epping-essex-england (note previous name). It's quite worrying.    
    • To me, it isn't just about social distancing and hygiene measures. I'm far from the first to say it but until there's a reliable track and trace system, I don't think this can be managed properly.   Children may not suffer as much as adults, although some do, they can be asymptomatic and pass on the virus to the rest of the family.   https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/lockdown-david-king-second-wave-18739973
    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.

    • 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

Hi

Can anybody give me some advice please

This morning at 6.15a.m. a bailiff from Jacobs came to my door and put a "removal of goods" notice through the letterbox. It said that he was to execute a warrant issued by Northampton county court for non payment of a parking fine and I had four hours to contact him

This I did and he is insistant that I have to pay this money £257.11 by 9p.m. or he will come back and clamp my car, and thus incur further costs. I said that I disputed this fine as I had

1. Written to the council to appeal the parking ticket

2. Not received anything about the outcome of the appeal

3.Not received anything to say it was going to court

4.This was the first correspondence from the bailiff company

 

Can anybody please help me, I have tried to contact solicitors, but none deal in this type of matter and my local CAB have a 3-4 week backlog if i leave a message on the answerphone.

 

If i must pay this then i will have to grin and bear it but he was so inflexible, as i get paid on the 28th, and he basicly said he can do what he wants.

 

I would appreciated any help and advice and thanks for reading

When you say you wrote to the council to appeal the warrant can you please clarify exactly what is was you got and what you said to the council.

 

It may be (and sounds like you were) that you were too late to appeal to the council and that is why you got no response.

 

My view is that to pay now is likely to be the cheapest option.

I receive an unwieldy number of private messages. I am happy to respond to messages posted on open forum but am unable to respond to private messages, seeking advice, when the substance of that message should properly be on the open forum.

Many thanks for your assistance and understanding on this.

I would agree. Appealing a warrant would normally have to be done through the court who issued it. The OP should of received a court summons which is when he could of entered a defence. If he had nothing then write to the court and ask for judgement to be set aside due to not being served the papers. One things which puzzles me is that the OP suggests in his post that he has received something because he states he has written to the council had heard nothing of the 'outcome of the appeal'.

There is no summons for decrim parking ! get into the tEC file a Witness statement to stop the bailiffs,. prepare to have to go to an N244. This gets the process reset to the NTO stage. Bailiff fees to date become an issue for the council - but the bailiffs and the council are likely to lie to you about this. Many tomtubby posts about this - worth looking them up.

I was incorrectly issued a parking ticket by Liverpool Police stating that i had parked in a prohibited area, when I was, in fact, on private ground and away from the road. I appealed the ticket within the 28 days statutory period and heard nothing in response until I suddenly got a letter from the courts saying that I had been issued with a fine for non-payment.

 

I wrote to the court stating that I had appealed the ticket and had not been told that my appeal was rejected, nor was I ever invited to a court hearing and this must be a mistake on behalf of the police. They were not interested in helping and neither were Merseyside Police when I also complained to them about it. I was just told I have no choice but to pay it. It is worth mentioning at this point that, according to the courts, Merseyside Police had denied to them having ever received either my appeal letter nor subsequent letter of enquiry and I had (stupidly) not thought to send them recorded delivery.

 

I eventually landed at the Merseyside Central Ticket Office (who were responsible for issuing the tickets) and a helpful chap there told me of my right to request to to be allowed to make a "Statutory Declaration". Basically, I had to go to the court who had issued the ticket and swear that I had in fact appealed it within the time allowed, despite the Police claiming to have no record of it. The court accepts the statement and removes the fine. It's then up to the police to decide if they want to pursue it further. If they do, you are bounced back to the "Notice to Owner" stage where you should, by recorded post, request a court hearing.

 

I realise this is a bit different to your circumstances, but thought you may be able to do something similar?

There is no NTO stage for a Police FPN.

FPNs are different animals

So basically there doesn't seem much I can do, the council who issued the parking ticket can just deny that I even sent them a letter appealing the ticket, can go to court without even telling me and the bailiff has the right to come to my home at 6.15 in the morning and demand the money within 4 hours or threaten to clamp my car?

You need to contact the Traffic Enforcement Centre, as in post 5 by lamma.
