    Private parking fine & images taken of me & a colleague 13th Jan 19 at 3:26 PM

    After going to a meeting in Manchester with a colleague I have recently received a parking fine from a private company. Along with the fine letter they have also taken picture of me and the colleague walking into the meeting building and then also coming out about an hour or so later. These photos werenít from a parking camera they have clearly been taken by someone (who appears to have been waiting for us). This surely canít be right or legal?

    Any help & advice would be great,

    Thank you,

    For what 'offence' has the parking charge been issued?

    Who has issued it?
    Please note, we are not a legal, residential or credit advice forum, rather one that helps motorists fight private parking charges, primarily at the 'front-end' of the process.

    looks like the car park terms were that you had not to leave the site , and they have got good clear pictures to show you did

    fantastic evidence and not illegal

    please read the newbies thread if you have questions regarding inital appeal , come back here (do not add to that thread) and ask away

    It is not a fine.

    What is the name of the parking company please?

    Their photo evidence will be of use to the parking company if they have additional photos of the same people getting into or out of a car that breached the conditions of use for a private car park.

    Taking photos of people in public is not illegal.

    This does not mean that you should give up. Start by reading the sticky thread for NEWBIES then send the appeal template in blue that you will find there.
