Parking ticket appealling

I was subject to a visit from the men in red on thursday last week resulting in a £30 fine for parking in a parking space and with a valid ticket. I was out side Nationwide, half of the area was coned off so I parked in the other half, got my ticket from the nearby machine and went for my meeting with the bank manager. on return found the two in red slapping a ticket on my screen. "is this you vehicle" they asked, "yes" I stated, "you are parked in a suspended parking bay sir" I looked at the coned off bay and discovered that someone had moved the cones to make the whole bay coned off while I was parked. "dont worry sir if you appeal within 14 days NCP are bieng very leanient if its your first offence" I am now going to have to go through the appeal process now to avoid £30/60 fine. any one else had problems like this!

Yes NCP and ESCC clearly stated this 'suspended parking bay' thing in literature handed out to permit holders etc. It's clearly unfair that they issued a ticket in the first place only to tell you to go claim it wasn't your fault. Now tell me that the wardens aren't either paid per ticket or given a b0ll0cking if they don't meet certain quoters. NCP and Sympathetic are two words that rarely are seen in the same sentance unless 'un' is before the sympathetic.

This does look like a nasty variant, and not just because of Boris Johnsons face above.
