I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law. Section 6 of the Interpretation Act 1978 applies to everything I post as it would apply to an Act of Parliament. I am a Conservative councillor, this means some people think I am "scum". I practice law in the Traffic Penalty Tribunal, London Tribunals, the First-tier tribunal for Scotland, and the Traffic Penalty Tribunal for Northern Ireland, but I am not a solicitor nor a barrister. Notwithstanding this, I voluntarily apply the cab rank rule.

Anyone want a forged PCN.... Ivans got a few to spare.... LOL

The mind boggles that Newham would even suggest.
It is understandable that they would require inspection of the beasts in question, simply to be able to discount one possibility but seemingly rely on it without verifying.

Nice on the costs BTW, can't say I've ever seen one as high towards the motorists before.

East London boroughs would apparently rather accuse people of fraud than simply fixing their PCN issuing procedures. Some serious mental gymnastics going on there...

Can we please not forget that councillors do not run council departments - that is done by council employees.   Were there to be an election tomorrow and the control change to Conservatives, Newham would instantly become a "Conservative-run council", but the employees in the parking services department would be exactly the same people doing exactly the same things, and if that change in control had happened before this deplorable incident then The Telegraph would have been duty bound to write

'A Conservative-run council has issued a grovelling apology for wrongly accusing two motorists and their legal representative of forging faulty penalty charge notices (PCNs) in an “orchestrated fraud”.'
