in Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking

I have just parked in a car park allegedly run by a private company. It is not supervised or monitored to protect my vehicle. I was in a rush purchased a ticket and returned 20 minutes late to find a van parked by my car having clamped it. He wanted £120.00 to release the car and had written out a ticket. I rang the police who informed me that this was civil matter. The notice I saw above me warned of being clamped but I could not see no tariff of how much this would be if I was late and besides the notice where I was revealed a different company to whom I was asked to pay. I looked at other notices and they seemed to say the same company as the man who told me to pay. I later found out that my car has been damaged slightly by the where the clamp has been. I rang the company up and was told to write in but because I was late back there was nothing I could do. I asked if some discount could be applied if the van was still parked there and had only just put the clamp and didn't have to return to where I was but was told they had to be consistent in what they charge. My questions were also are they allowed to charge so much, what do I do about the damage to my car I was told to write in - I asked whom I was talking to but was told I was talking to officer no 47!!! The company was called Ethical Parking Management. Surely they cannot be justified to charge this much for a fine??? What shall I do????
