Was the van actually parked on the grass verge?

That picture doesn’t show the van parked on the verge, so it is hard to tell if it was legally parked or not.

 

What difference if it wasn’t legally parked?

You could complain, at most.

 

What is the speed limit there?

If you were speeding, if the van was legally parked or not, you could still get a speeding ticket.

If you were doing 45 mph at the time you were clocked you should not expect enforcement to be taken. In a 40mph limit enforcement begins at 46mph. However you may have been travelling faster than 45mph when your speed was measured. A NIP must be served on the Registered Keeper within 14 days of the alleged offence but there are no time limits for subsequent NIPs if the Registered Keeper names someone else as the driver (apart from the overall limit of six months to begin a prosecution). The siting of the van is of no relevance whatsoever and even if parked illegally does not provide a "Get Out of Jail Free" card.
