    • March 23: As the coronavirus crisis escalates, the UK is placed into lockdown with strict limitations on travel. The Government guidelines state: “You should not be visiting family members who do not live in your home.” The prime minister tells the UK public they "must stay at home". People are warned not to meet friends or family members they do not live with. Those with symptoms had already been told to self-isolate     Friday 27 March: Downing Street On the day Cummings ran out of No 10, his wife, Mary Wakefield, appears to have been already ill, according to her Spectator article about the experience, in which she says: “My husband did rush home to look after me.”   Both Boris Johnson and Health Secretary Matt Hancock test positive for coronavirus, while chief medical officer Chris Whitty says he has symptoms of the disease and is self-isolating.   Mr Cummings said: "I suddenly got a call from my wife who was looking after our four-year-old child. She told me she suddenly felt badly ill." He went home and after a couple of hours his wife felt better and he returned to work. "There were many critical things at work and she asked me to return [to work] in the afternoon and I did." He then "drove up to Durham that night arriving at roughly midnight" with his family.     In spectator articles on 24th and 25th April * Wakefield (wife) wrote in the spectator that Cummings said “I feel weird” and collapsed 24 hours after he came home to look after her * She went on to explain that for the next 10 days “Dom couldn’t get out of bed. Day in, day out for ten days he lay doggo with a high fever and spasms that made the muscles lump and twitch in his legs.” * Cummings wrote that “at the end of March and for the first two weeks of April I was ill, so we were both shut in together.” * The following days, by Wakefield’s account, were a mixture of family idyll and health nightmare, as she made a “palace out of polystyrene packaging” with their son … even as Cummings’s breathing got so bad that she feared he should be in hospital. But 10 days after her husband first fell ill, she said, he began to feel better – just as Boris Johnson went into hospital. That would place the improvement in his condition around Sunday 5 April,     Sat March 28th Is apparently the day Cummings said “I feel weird” and collapsed 24 hours after he came home to look after her His wife went on to explain that for the next 10 days “Dom couldn’t get out of bed. Day in, day out for ten days he lay doggo with a high fever and spasms that made the muscles lump and twitch in his legs.” Cummings wrote that “at the end of March and for the first two weeks of April I was ill, so we were both shut in together.” 10 days from March 28th – would take us to the 7th April.   Mon March 30: Downing Street confirms Mr Cummings is suffering from coronavirus symptoms and is self-isolating.   Tuesday 31 March/1st April: Durham The police have said that on 31 March they were “made aware of reports” of Cummings’s presence in the area and had then contacted the family to “reiterate the appropriate advice around essential travel”.   2 April: During the night, Mr Cummings' four-year-old son "threw up and had a bad fever". Following medical advice, an ambulance took the child to hospital. He was accompanied by Mr Cummings' wife   3 April: Mr Cummings' son spent the night in hospital and woke up the next day having "recovered". He was tested for coronavirus and his mother, who was with him at the hospital, was told "they should return home". According to Mr Cummings, there were no taxis so he "drove to the hospital, picked him up and returned home". He said he "did not leave the car or have any contact with anybody on this short trip".   Sunday 5 April: The ‘Abba’ sighting (despite claims of ten days where he couldn’t get up with a high fever) Cummings alledgedly seen in Garden with AbbA blaring But 10 days after her husband first fell ill, she said, he began to feel better – just as Boris Johnson went into hospital. Which would place the improvement in his condition around Sunday 5 April, … Although the claimed 10 days after the 28th – the earliest point at which Cummings was said to have been symptomatic – would be the 7 April. The Guardian approaches Downing Street about the story, only to be told by a spokesman: “It will be a no comment on that one.” Mr Cummings said "after I started to recover, one day in the second week, I tried to walk outside the house". He confirmed he, his wife and his son went for a walk into woods owned by his father and it was at this point he was seen by passers-by but his family "had no interaction with them". The exact date is not clear but his second week isolating in Durham would have between 4-11th   6 April: At some point in the week leading up to this date, Mr Cummings discussed his decision to travel to Durham with the prime minister. "When we were both sick and in bed," he said, "I mentioned to him what I had done. Unsurprisingly given the condition we were in, neither of us remember the conversation in any detail."   Fri April 10: Number 10 is again contacted for comment regarding Mr Cumming’s trip by the Guardian. Instead of defending the journey, officials declined to comment.   Fri 10th/Sat 11th April: The 14-day period of Cummings’s isolation would have expired on 10/11th April, assuming it is counted from when Wakefield appears to have first fallen ill on 27 March or when Cummings fell ill 24 hours later.   11 April: Believing he had recovered by this date, albeit "feeling weak and exhausted", Mr Cummings said he "sought expert medical advice". "I explained our family's symptoms and all the timings and asked if it was safe to return to work on Monday or Tuesday, seek childcare and so on. I was told that it was safe and I could return to work"   Sunday 12 April: Barnard Castle Wakefield’s birthday, according to Companies House records – they allegedly made a trip to Barnard Castle, a charming town 30 miles from the Cummings’s family property, described on the English Heritage website as having “fantastic views” and “plenty to do for families on a day out”. That detail emerged in an interview with Robin Lees, a retired chemistry teacher who lives in the town. Lees, who says he has a photographic memory, told the Guardian he was “a bit gobsmacked” to see Cummings, and then was so incensed that he made a note of the family car’s numberplate and checked it online when he got home. Cummings acknowledges he drove to Barnard Castle, 30 miles from his parents' home in Durham, with his wife and child. He explained this episode as needing to test his driving was fine before making the long drive back to London. He said he'd been having problems with his vision   Tuesday 14 April: London The Guardian asked Wakefield to confirm whether the family had been in London throughout the lockdown period, but received no reply. Cummings was photographed back in Downing Street on 14 April   Sunday 19 April: ‘bluebell’ woods - Cummings and Wakefield in Houghall woods? Could Cummings have then gone back to the north-east from London? Downing Street is emphatic that he did not. The denial came after another witness claimed to the Guardian and Sunday Mirror that they had seen Cummings and Wakefield on a country walk in Houghall Woods, a beauty spot near his parents’ property in Durham. According to this account, Cummings said: “Aren’t the bluebells lovely?” Cummings says he did not return to Durham   Monday 20 April Cummings seen in London again   May 23: Downing Street statement: “Owing to his wife being infected with suspected coronavirus and the high likelihood that he would himself become unwell, it was essential for Dominic Cummings to ensure his young child could be properly cared for.” The statement said: “At no stage was he or his family spoken to by the police about this matter, as is being reported. “His actions were in line with coronavirus guidelines. Mr Cummings believes he behaved reasonably and legally.” Speaking outside his home, Mr Cummings reiterated: “I behaved reasonably and legally”. When a reporter suggested to him that his actions did not look good, he replied: “Who cares about good looks? “It’s a question of doing the right thing. It’s not about what you guys think.” Later at the daily Downing Street briefing, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said Mr Cummings had the PM’s “full support” and that Mr Johnson “knew that he was unwell and that he was in lockdown”. Mr Shapps said it had always been permissible for families to travel to be closer to their relatives as long as they “go to that location and stay in that location”. Meanwhile, deputy chief medical officer for England, Dr Jenny Harries, said that travelling during lockdown was permissible if “there was an extreme risk to life”, with a “safeguarding clause” attached to all advice to prevent vulnerable people being stuck at home with no support.   Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak have tweeted their support for Mr Cummings.   Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said on Monday morning that Mr Cummings had "set out absolutely clearly and absolutely categorically he didn't break the rules and didn't break the law". The attorney general, Suella Braverman, tweet on Saturday in which she quoted the full text of the No 10 statement on Boris Johnson’s chief aide in which the prime minister said he had behaved “responsibly and legally”.   (Disgraceful) Boris Johnson said at the weekend Cummings acted “responsibly and legally and with integrity”   “The PM’s risible defence of Cummings is an insult to all those who have made such sacrifices to ensure the safety of others,” said Johne Inge, the bishop of Worcester, on Twitter.   “What planet are they on?” asked a front page headline in the Daily Mail, an influential right-wing paper usually supportive of Johnson.   https://descrier.co.uk/politics/dominic-cummings-and-wife-tried-to-cover-up-lockdown-breach-in-articles-for-the-spectator/   https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/may/24/dominic-cummings-timeline-what-we-know-about-his-movements   https://www.eveningexpress.co.uk/news/uk/timeline-the-coronavirus-lockdown-and-dominic-cummings-trip-to-durham/   https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-52784290   https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/may/25/attorney-general-faces-calls-to-resign-defends-dominic-cummings-suella-braverman   https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-health-coronavirus-britain-cummings/what-planet-are-they-on-no-respite-for-johnson-and-aide-idUKKBN2310UE   https://cyprus-mail.com/2020/05/25/what-plant-are-they-on-press-slams-johnson-and-cummings/

I am running late on this one, I have to have my defence in by Wednesday.

 

Name of the Claimant UK Parking Control Ltd

claimants Solicitors: SCS Law

 

Date of issue – 06/04/18

 

What is the claim for – the reason they have issued the claim?

The claimant claims from the defendant the sum of £800 in respect of unpaid parking notices issued as a result of the defendant's breach of terms and conditions of parking at a site managed by the claimant.

I will provide the defendant with seperate details particulars within 14 days after service of the claim form.

What is the value of the claim? £800

Has the claim been issued by the Private parking Company or was the PCN assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim ? UK Parking Control Ltd

 

Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment? No

 

There are 5 seperate notices that were issued.

I knew nothing of the first 4, the 5th I did and I appealed as they got the make of my car wrong and the signage was poor.

I heard nothing back and forgot about it.

 

 

A few months later i received a letter from a DCA and i explaiined the situation, they said I missed my appeal time and I had to pay.

I then ignored them.

 

I wasn't the only one that used my car, others had access to it.

 

I've attached pictures of the letters below.

Apologies, no matter what I tried I couldn't get picture 4 the right way round.

 

What do you suggest defence wise please?

 

Thank you

I expect that site team member: DX will be along soon. However, in the meantime, I see that you say that the car had several other drivers – but on the POC it says that you admitted being the driver.

 

Also, have you acknowledged this claim? Also it seems to me that the time for defence might have expired

Hi Bankfodder. I appealed just the one notice, I've had no discussion with then on any of the others.

 

My calculations puts day 33 as tomorrow. Have I calculated wrong?

 

Claim was acknowledged in time also

I don't know whether you calculated incorrectly – but if it is 33 days then I'm pretty surprised that they haven't put in for a judgement – and they may well have done. What has been happening in the past 28 days that you have left it till now to come to us?

 

I don't really understand when you say – that you only appealed one. In the particulars of claim is says that you admitted being the driver on all of the contraventions. It would be helpful if you would give us a bit more detailed advice without having to cross examine you please. You really don't have much time if you're going to do anything about this – assuming that something can be done.

I go away with work often, I didn't pick up the letter from the court until 23/04. I then acknowledged the claim with gave me until 09/05. My then few days away turned into a week.

 

I've only even had correspondence with ukpc about 1 of the penalty notices, this one I appealed. I'm guessing by me appealing it admits to being the driver on that one occasion.

So I take it that it is not true that you admitted being the driver in all cases.

What was the basis of the appeal that you made?

Yep, I've never admitted for those others.

 

The appeal was for 2 reasons, 1, they got the make of my car wrong. 2, no clear signage

And did you get any Notices to Keeper? What correspondence have you got from them?

I'm not massively up on the situation with private parking at the moment and I'm hoping that DX will be along soon who I think is much more current with this kind of thing. I have one or two ideas but I'd like to discuss it with DX first. Certainly you need to get a defence in before 4 o'clock this afternoon

Ok, hadn't realised it included the 6th.

 

Will I need to provide photos at this point of poor signage and the error on the penalty notice?

No that comes later in the process when you submit your witness statement and evidence.

 

Just an initial defence today

Well make sure that you engage closely with the thread. If DX doesn't come along today then we'll work something out together. It certainly sounds to me as if there are grounds for defending. You wouldn't have much to lose except you could be required to pay the reasonable costs of travel.

Will do, thank you.

 

I'm viewing it at the moment that I'll have to pay and if I don't it's a bonus. Rarely do I let others used my car now, not having this happen again.

they havent provided details of the claim so where exactly did you acquire all of these tickets? if it was outrside your house then saying you werent the driver wont cut the mustard BUT the chances are that they dont have any rights ot enforce anyway.

 

You dont need reams of detail in your defence at the moment so just a couple of lines that go like

 

1. the defendant does not believe that the claimant has the authority by way of a contract with the landowner to enter into contracts and make civil claims in their own name.

 

2 in any case the sigange at the site is insufficient to offer terms for the defendant to consider and accept as a contract and to be bound by their terms.

 

3 The defendant denies being the driver on 4 out of 5 of the events in question and as there is no keeper liability created by the POFA 2012 and the claimant is stating they are pursuing the driver then it is put to strict proof as to who was driving at the time for each and all of the events.

 

You then have to pull your finger out and find the evidence that sits with this now,

so all of the paperwork and the dates it arrived at your home,

detail of the wheres and when,

pictures of the sigange and the entrance to the land and if it is a residential development we will need to knwo what the terms of the leases/tenancies are regarding parking and this is NOT what ther managing agents say but waht is down in the head lease

 

FAX this to court or use moneyclaim online and also fax

It's a road in the town centre behind a few shops. Cars are always parked there as the signs aren't visable unless you go quite a way down it. I found this out after I received the penalty notice. I took photos then too.

I think there are some more substantial arguments than this.
