    • OK.  So you lent your car to a friend in 2019 and he racked up three parking tickets that he tells you he didn't know anything about(!).  You were the registered keeper (RK) at the time at your family address, but you got chucked out and could not change your RK address with DVLA because you were homeless.  You knew nothing about the parking tickets and enforcement action until you got a bailiffs' letter passed on to you.  You made an Out of Time (OOT) application in respect of one PCN but Birmingham CC objected to it and the traffic court rejected your application.  A solicitor helped you make OOTs in respect of the other two PCNs but you don't yet know the outcome of those two applications.   Is that the situation you are in?   dx100uk thinks you can resubmit the application saying your friend was the driver.  I don't think saying that will help as the driver is irrelevant.  It's the owner who is liable to pay the charge and that is the RK (unless the RK is a car hire firm).  I assume you are not a car hire firm so you are stuck with the liability, not the driver.   Whether you actually can resubmit an OOT once one has been rejected I do not know, but why not try.  What did the solicitor put on the applications they helped you with?  Did you not ask their advice about the rejected application while you were with them?  I think you would have to say something to the effect that you never received any paperwork in relation to the PCNs because you had been chucked out of your home and because you were homeless you did not update your address at DVLA.  That is the truth isn't it?  You don't want to lie on the application.   To me that's a good reason for you not doing anything about the PCNs, but I suspect that Birmingham CC will object again and that the traffic court will reject again.  And, as I said above, I don't even know if you can submit a second OOT application in respect of a PCN if the first has been rejected.   So it looks to me like you might be a bit stuck.   Unless dx100uk, or spaceman61, or another poster with expertise in local authority PCNs comes along I'm not sure what you do.   If you get no more helpful suggestions here you could try on National Consumer Service.  If you do go there, do not register with a hotmail address.  You will also need to provide them with a timeline of everything for all the documents you actually have, and you will need all the facts and dates etc at your fingertips.  And make sure they are accurate.   http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showforum=30   And get your friend to contribute to paying off the PCNs.  Do you believe he really knew nothing about them?

    • Hi Charlie and welcome to CAG   As an Executor, you have a duty to insure the property and tell the currect insurer of the passing of the deceased.   Most insurers will refuse normal contents cover on a house left unoccupied beyond 60 days. So, unoccupied, the home will not be insured against break-in damage, theft, flood, accidental damage, etc.   You may be able to obtain FLEE insurance covering only Fire, Lightening, Explosion and Earthquake. It may cost more than usual contents cover  because the home is unoccupied, even though the level/amount of cover is less than for an occupied home.   As said here already, an Executor would be wise (or indeed have a duty) to remove valuables from the home if you have somewhere safer to store them pending Probate, distribution, sale, etc.   I hope if you can explain the insurance risks to YB and assure him that you are not taking items just for your own benefit, he may see sense.   Please keep us updated ............

"an earlier phase of the OptiGene testing – which was supposed to involve all 250,000 residents of Salford, Greater Manchester, being tested regularly – was quietly scaled back after it struggled to even test 250 Salfordians a day. After the pilot was paused, the government said it would now be smaller in scale and focused on “high-risk environments and groups”."

 

So smaller in scale than the failed first test which failed to achieve its target of just 250 tests a day  ..

 

Where are they re-implementing it? A local happy shopper?

"When he announced the mass testing plan in September, Johnson conceded it was hugely ambitious but predicted the system could be “widespread” by spring"

 

so testing 250,000 people at the rate of 250 a day for a wider roll-out in 6 months or so was 'ambitious' eh?

Well I suppose it clearly was - as it failed miserably.

.. and £500 million pounds was it? ... to fail to collect and test just 250 spit samples a day? .. from a single geographic location

 

and the guardian has a nice big graphic center piece in the article promoting handcocks utter cobblers 300,000 tests a day ...

while questioning nothing?

thought I was watching the BBC

It's not going well at Serco/Sitel Test and Trace. They're using untrained staff to do clinical assessments of people who have tested positive because they don't have enough staff. They seem to have learned nothing since the first wave.

So anecdote, my wife and daughter's Covid test posted Monday 9 am, Results texted 10pm Wednesday night, Wife negative, Daughter is positive.

We immediately emailed the school despite it being half term here, as her symptoms appeared last Thursday. Head Teacher called us  Public Health Wiltshire informed, email sent out telling her year to self isolate.

 

All pretty efficient, while patient zero is on the phone to all her mates giggling about her loss of smell. 

 

As an aside covid for a 14 year old, was a mild fever for a few hours, and a sore throat. Then back to normal minus a sense of smell. She's now probably been infectious for 8 days, nobody else has had symptoms ' yet'

I must say it's all been pretty good and joined together. They even sent a test for my wife as she has medication that she must stop if Covid positive. , which she fortunately wasn't.

 

This disease is incredibly dangerous because of it's unpredictability. We ate at the same table, 3 days in a row, sat together as a family, I drove my daughter around for 3 hours in the day before she had symptoms, and was handing me chewing gums from the pack, at the time she was most infectious, yet 9 days later none of us or her close contacts have displayed any symptoms, (apart from my slightly suspicious sore throat).

 

Then at the other extreme there re super spreader events leading to numerous hospitalisations.  It makes no sense whatsoever!

Its strange that one London,  the tinfoil hatters are doubting the accuracy of the tests, but it may be that individual susceptibility is a variable feast, as in one in a family gets something bad, the rest suffer little at all.  Just hope your missus stays well.

I was thinking that earlier, BN. Most of us need a kettle and at least a microwave and some gas or electric rings that work. And I don't know many ladies who could do without a hairdryer.

 

Are people meant to order online?

It's what most of us did before.  If a shop is allowed to open then limiting what we can purchase off the shelves is nothing to do with control of the virus.  They can hardly claim it's about public health that you aren't allowed the paint to redecorate room and keep yourself occupied but you can buy enough alcohol to have a party.

Kay Burley's as thick as they come. How she got a job as a news presenter, or in fact any job at all, I'll never quite understand.
