More money for wrongly fined drivers in Sunderland

Sunderland Council still not putting their hands up. It appears that the quest will be to find an area where they have actually done something correct!
They are hanging on to this by the skin of their teeth.

Legal experts have told council bosses in a parking-fines controversy they must repay more money to drivers.

A Sunderland Council report confirms errors have been made in setting up traffic orders. The council is already returning £33,767 to drivers.

It has admitted it did not implement several ideas recommended by consultants. Now a report confirms discrepancies between traffic orders and signs. It says: "Counsel has given advice for a range of scenarios and it is clear that some further repayments should be made..."

Campaigner Neil Herron, who exposed the errors, said: "They've conceded they've made loads of mistakes, yet its down to the same people to put it right."
