Totally ignore DCBL. As usual thay are talking out of the wrong end of thie bodies. You were authorised by the Police to park there. End of. Plus your car was not driveable anyway so not parked. I assume that the notice you received four years ago was probably from a car parking group of crooks rather than the actual garage service operator. Please do not worry about it, whoever is using DCBL to pursue does not have a leg to stand on. Should you get a Letter of Claim from the parking Company let us know and we will advise you on your next move. Otherwise just forget about it.
For fun I have attached a copy of one of their e-mails (invoice numbers edited for privacy), indicating just how much "attention to detail" they apply to their "investigations",
Full marks to them however for being diligently gender neutral by keeping their options open in terms of title despite me having signed each e-mail with the relevant title.
