A disabled woman has expressed relief after the Tele stepped in to have a parking fine that was incorrectly issued to her cancelled.
Melanie Forrest, 56, visited the Carnoustie branch of Costa Coffee earlier this month to buy a drink.
When she left the customer car park, a camera system picked up her registration and issued a fine despite her being parked legitimately.
Melanie said she was shocked to receive the £100 fine at her home in Leven days after her visit.
When she initially received the fine Melanie submitted a copy of her receipt to show she had a right to park there to the operator Civil Enforcement Ltd.
Despite this proof, the company demanded she pay the fine or face additional fees and even legal action. It was then that Melanie asked the Tele to step in.
We tried to contact Civil Enforcement Ltd to ask why she was being chased for the money but were unsuccessful.
We then contacted Costa Coffee on Melanie’s behalf and the firm subsequently cancelled the fine.
