    • https://www.bindmans.com/news/neale-v-dpp-the-right-to-silence-citizens-duties-and-coronavirus-regulations   Perhaps the OP should have said nothing - and risked arrest!   "Firstly, the case calls into question the logic behind aspects of the criminal justice response to the public health crisis created by the Coronavirus pandemic...   "Secondly, it is clear that some police officers have misunderstood and misstated their powers, and citizens’ obligations, under the Regulations and at common law...   "Thirdly, the case confirms reasonable excuses for being outside are not limited to those explicitly set out in the Regulations. Police officers considering whether there are reasonable grounds for believing that an offence has been committed under the Regulations so that an FPN may be issued, or the reasonable grounds for suspicion that are necessary for an arrest, should give proper consideration to any explanation given by members of the public (and what a court might think of them) rather than only recognising those exceptions explicitly listed in the Regulations and/or government guidance...   Fourthly, the case is an example of a failure of the CPS review into prosecutions brought under Coronavirus Regulations, which has found that alarming numbers of cases were wrongly charged..."   Above quotes from the Bindman's article, not the decision.  Case arose from the first lockdown and was in Wales.  Same now?  Also was about not being at home - not mask wearing.

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

received notice to keeper from euro car parks (its my husbands but he wont be home till tomorrow night )

I've scanned it but no idea how to put it on here or remove his personal information (but I am trying)


it says failure to adhere to signage on site


it also says the driver has failed to pay the notice amount within the time specified so its increased to £90


we haven't had any other letters from them and nothing left on the car

Hi. ive asked admin to remove your pdf until identifiers can be removed


Also, euro car parks always and without question mess up> usually on the signage which is not following regulation, and usually does not form a contract.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..



If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

thanks for that I did try and thought I had succeeded because it had posted and I didn't check it after I posted


I've not got much to go on at the moment I did think its was the Travelodge but that's free so he must have stayed somewhere else that night and that letter tells me nothing

it sounds like a standard "disappearing ticket" NTK. This is where the parking co attach a ticket to the vehicle, photograph it and then remove it and then send out the NTK saying it is too late for the discount period.


The letter should state exactly where this event occurred or it isnt worth the paper it is written on. It should also state exactly why the money is owed and that means stating what the breach was if a breach of contract ( must be from what they do say). They also fail to say who the ultimate creditor is so they again dont have a claim that is worth a light.


Typical useless ECP


Where is Woodbridge meadows in Guildford? It appears to be only a Travelodge that is a likely place so if you were guests there get on to Travelodge HQ and complain bitterly about the attempted fraud (no ticket on vehicle- man seen loitering next to car and photographing it but certainly no ticket left)


Also the signage at the entrance to the Travelodge car park doesnt mention any charges for parking beyond 3 hours so the signage visible from the road make the claim a nonsense. Let them know in no uncertain terms they are complicit in allowing this attempted fraud to be enabled.


Get a name of their UK boss and write to them, you will fare better than a normal customer service 3take it up with the parking co" response


Give them time to respond and if they dont get the claim cancelled you can take the matter up with ECP and their trade association and also slag off travelodge on social media for employing crooks when deciding on car parking matters.

ericsbrother thanks for the reply


I wasn't their is was my husband he was working in Guilford I looked at the council car park receipt he got that day and he left the castle car park Guilford at 17- 19 so I assumed he had went to the Travelodge as its only about 10/15 min from their and the tickets time is 17-56


I will have to deal with this for him because he is not here in the week and some weekends and no internet access and he cant use a P.C.


will ask him tonight where he stayed

same advice, get on to travelodge and complain that they havent done as they said they would. If they say it is too late to do anything let them know they will be trashed on twitter and other social media for going back on their promise
