Craig Mell parked in the car park of the B&M store at Keighley in Bradford, West Yorkshire in July 2021 and the cash machine was broken – he has now been fined 6 months later

Craig Mell is shocked after saying he received a parking ticket while the machine was broken down

A man claims a parking company randomly wrote to him demanding £160 within two weeks for a parking ticket from six months ago – or they will take him to court.

Craig Mell explained that the cash machine in a car park at the B&M store in Keighley in Bradford, West Yorkshire was out of order when he tried to buy one on July 17, 2021.

He actually took a photo of the cash machine in the Cavendish Retail Park so he could dispute any charge he received – but says he has never received anything in the post so far, reports Yorkshire Live .

The first time he knew of a parking problem was when a letter from a debt collector asking for the money arrived a fortnight ago.

He threatened that if Craig didn’t pay, the case would be taken to court.

But Craig has tried calling the parking company, called G24 Ltd, several times this week and has been unable to speak to anyone.

Craig said: “I haven’t lived in Keighley for very long but I had seen people always getting parking tickets in this car park.

“They all have the same problem as me. The machine doesn’t work, then six months later I get a bloody letter from a debt collector.

“I always take a picture of the machine when it’s down to make sure I can prove it’s not working, just in case. If I had gotten a letter from the car park, I would have fixed it right away .







The incident dates back to July 2021

“It’s even worse that when I got this letter they try to say I can’t dispute it anymore.”
