    Hi all. Back in March 2014 I collected my parents from Newcastle airport. I arrived late and to save me the 1 drop off/pick up fee they walked out to a close hotel entrance. They informed me where they were and I obviously went to their location. This was close to the airport and from what I believe, was on airport land. They do have signs prohibiting loading in that area, I admit I was wrong however it was late, dark and the signs were unlit - despite being regulatory signs in a lit area - the TSRGD issued by the Secretary of State clearly states that these signs should be lit if in a built up area with street lighting. I only noticed these signs upon my return to the airport to check after receiving a charge from UKPC. I followed advice and ignored. I then moved from this address and I kind of forgot about it, more and more as time went on in fact. It was only this week that I returned to the house, which for the past 3 years has been rented out by my parents, to a stack of letters from UKPC, Debt Recovery Plus and most recently Gladstones solicitors stating that to prevent legal action I need to pay 160 within 14 days. I have never contacted either UKPC or debt recovery plus so I'm not sure where my argument now stands.

    Thank you...

    Hi, did you reply back to Gladstones? If no, have they come back to you?

    They have sent me a letter last week so contemplating what to do?
