    Manchester evening News: Residents 'hit with £20,000 in fines' - own space parking 2nd Dec 17 at 11:06 AM
    Article in Manchester Evening news:

    Looks like the residents are up for a fight, if they want to fight back, then they should go for a data protection act breach against the management company, Lambert Smith Hampton over the actions of their agents, Simon Renshaw-Smiths VCS parking

    But residents say many of them were away at the time, didnít receive the letter or never got a permit. The permit is specific to each residentís space, which means drivers can be liable for a ticket if someone parks in their space and they park elsewhere. Meanwhile, others have been ticketed after refusing to adhere to the unpopular permit scheme.
    VCS was contracted by Lambert Smith Hampton which manages the 160 apartments. But residents say they never asked for a scheme - and were not consulted either.
    Led by resident Jeff Smart, 54, a BBC editor, many are refusing to pay their fines - and wonít give up until the firm is axed and their fines revoked.

    From the linked article:

    "The BPA has surely become one of the most socially dangerous organisations in the UK"

  • Ah these care free days of watching #ENG score 5 goals in the first half of a World Cup match. It reminds me of... Never.

  • Then it should be. It's not some accident. It's deliberate grappling

  • Penalty yes but time someone was sent off for these wrestling moves #WorldCup
