A family trapped in heavy traffic were stunned when they landed a £100 fine for trying to leave a car park.
Donna and Darren Jacques had returned to their car with time to spare after watching a Bonfire Night display in Stockton, Teesside, last year.
But GazetteLive reports they couldn’t leave the private car park for another half an hour because of grid-locked streets.
They appealed the decision – but it was kicked out by independent ombudsman POPLA, who said the couple were still using the car park despite trying to leave.
It said they should have bought a new ticket to cover the time they spent queuing.
Car park operator ParkingEye had fined the couple, producing CCTV photos of them leaving the car park late.
Donna and Darren, from Billingham , had taken their two children to the display.
