war on the motorist: a shocking story

Motorists have accused an MP of failing to advise them properly on challenging parking tickets, leaving them having to pay thousands of pounds in fines.

One resident handed four parking tickets now owes more than £2,000.

Sarah Clements, who owes £150, claimed Mr Keen advised her to avoid paying until after her appeal was investigated. “In the financial climate at the moment this is ridiculous — I can't afford £150,” she said.

Mr Keen said he was “shocked to hear” of the lost appeals.
