Eligible For Refund But No Evidence

Hi, I am currently battling with my local council over unlawful parking notices being issued in an area in town where they weren't allowed to issue them. They have pretty much admitted that I can claim two of the notices back. These date back 3 years. However, they are asking for the following as evidence:


Original PCN Issued (I don't tend to keep these, especially after 3 years - not sure who would)
V5 - The car has since been scrapped, no documentation
Proof of Payment i.e bank statement (I have since moved all my banking with someone else so have no access to anything in the past


It seems to me they are purposely trying to make it hard for people so people just give up. This was a long time ago. They know I've paid the fines otherwise they'd still be chasing me for the money now no doubt.


Can anyone advise who may have been in a similar situation please?


Thanks

    You might be better posting this query on pepipoo.com as they are the experts on Council tickets, whereas here on MSE specialises in parking on private land.
