Officers posted on social media that yesterday morning (August 14) four cars, including a black Mercedes, were given tickets for parking illegally.

Three of the vehicles were parked within a disabled bay in Wisbech town centre, without displaying the correct badge.

The black Mercedes was parked along the footpath, directly in front of the Cat Haven charity shop, blocking pedestrians from walking along the path.

They tweeted: “PCSO’s have been patrolling the town centre this morning and have issued some Fixed Penalty Notices to illegally parked cars.”

One person on social media joked: “I hate fines. It’s Tuesday you can make an exception?”

One person who saw the illegally parked Mercedes said: “Bloody idiotic parking that poor little old lady struggled to get by that black car outside of Cat Haven, it was completely on the pavement.”
