    • 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

partner was stopped for speeding, doesnt deny it, but the ticket has a different road name to where he was stopped

 

can the ticket be fought on this, or is it better just to pay the £60 and take the points?

 

any help appreciated

The ticket is probably indicating where the offence took place not where he was stopped. Does he deny being at the place mentioned in the ticket?

the street named is different to where it happened

So to be clear he is denying speeding where the ticket states he was speeding?

Could it have been a continuing offence ie one where it started at one location and proceeded into the next until he was stopped but that the stopping point also was a place where he was speeding?

While I suspect you are 'splitting hairs here', if the ticket catagorically states that the offence took place somehwere other than the actual location where it did, then the 'offence' has not been commited as described on the ticket. You must remember that the police will most likely have video evidence to support the ticket so before challenging it, I would speak to a solicitor first.

He has probably received an FPN fromthe police to accept the offence and pay the fine/points base on that.

 

If he wishes to deny the offence (even if just because of the road name) it will proceed to magistrates court where the "proper" offence will be stated, which may include a correction to the road name involved. I think refusing an FPN based on this alone would be risky and may result in a higher fine.

Once it goes to court the mistake on the FPN will be irrelevant.

Entirely correct and even if the bench are minded to mirror a fine equivalent to that of the EFPN, i.e. £60, the ultimate "hit" on the OP's pocket is likely to be double that of simply paying the fixed penalty by the time you add in an award for costs (currently averaging between £48 and £63 and the completely inescapable Victim Support Levy of £15.

 

The only circumstances in which I could envisage that the OP might avoid the £60 is were he to be on benefits and even in those cases an assumption is generally made as to income and that can still result in higher fines than the EFPN.

 

Simplifying it EFPN = £60 plus a couple of stamps.

Going to Court = £60 (probably a minimum) + costs (average, say £55) + £15 Victim Support Levy = a total of £130
