Letter: I got unfair ticket too

editorial image

With regard the the story about the parking fine after two visits to Aldi.

The company responsible for parking Aldi, also control parking outside Decathlon and Next Giltbrook Retail Park. I parked in the retail park, wandered around various shops, bought an item from Decathlon and went back to my car to find a parking ticket. Absolutely no reason for it but it said I hadn’t bought anything! For a start not everyone buys when they browse, and actually I had bought something.

When I tried to contact the company it’s impossible to speak to a person, nor can you contact by email. I knew I’d done nothing wrong, so sent a registered letter to them challenging my so-called fine, and they dropped the charges immediately.

I would advise the people involved to send photocopies of the different till receipts to prove that the car wasn’t parked there all day.
