Had a parking ticket in Leeds in the last three years?

... then you must watch this.

BBC Look North broke this story exclusively tonight. We had supplied them with papers released under the Freedom of Information Act ... which contained damning revelations about issuing parking tickets illegally, Government Officers even referring to 'fraud or extortion.'

The implications for anyone receiving a ticket and being pursued by a council which does not have legal authority to do so could lead to further criminal complaints and it was considered that the content of the documents was so serious that, in the public interest, a formal complaint had to be made to West Yorkshire Police at 11.30am on Tuesday 22nd April 2008 by Neil Herron.

Anyone who has had a Leeds City Council parking ticket (Penalty Charge Notice) in the last three years please e-mail us at and we will keep you up to date with developments.

Don't worry if you cannot remember exactly when or where you got it, the important thing is to get in touch as soon as possible.

We intend to pursue matters to ensure that everyone who has been fined unlawfully gets a refund and if there is any more evidence to pass to the Police then we will do so.
