War veterans ‘targeted’ by traffic warden
JOBSWORTH traffic wardens slapped war veterans with parking tickets – on ARMED FORCES DAY.
Motorists – many of them disabled – returned to find they had been hit with £70 fines following a tribute celebration in Queens Park, Stoke-on-Trent.
Around 3,000 people attended the event and some were forced to park on a grass verge after spaces filled up.
Those that did – mostly elderly people and blue badge holders – returned to their cars to find parking tickets on their windscreens.
And they claimed jobsworth wardens targeted veterans.
Dennis Morley, 75, fumed: “You had people attending on crutches and in wheelchairs who had been injured serving their country.”
Stoke councillor Ruth Rosenau said: “It is important motorists park safely and legally.” He’s a million-selling artist turned actor, she’s a Hollywood A-lister. Together, they’re one of the hottest celeb couples around… But what would their kid look like?
