A parking fine issued to a widower on the day his wife died has been cancelled.

Donald MacLeod found a penalty notice on his car in April after leaving Ninewells Hospital, having just watched his wife die following an illness.

Mr MacLeod, who had been married for 37 years, said he was devastated after debt collectors’ letters started being delivered to his home, “hounding” him for payment.

Now Indigo, the company responsible for running the private car park at the Dundee hospital, has said it will cancel Mr MacLeod’s fine.

A spokesman for Indigo said: “All customers have a chance to appeal a parking charge notice up to 28 days after it has been issued.

“Customers are able to get in touch with us online or in writing if they wish to appeal a parking charge notice and the process is outlined on their ticket and the website.”
