DIY SOS star Nick Knowles blasts parking tickets given in Cirencester

GLOUCESTERSHIRE County Council has responded after a TV star  blasted parking tickets which were given at during Cirencester’ Christmas fayre. 

DIY SOS star Nick Knowles, who lives near the town, has hit out after parking tickets were issued to vehicles parking on yellow lines, claiming that ‘the car parks were full’. 

TV presenter Jeremy Vine has defended the council: “Excellent work.

“Children on foot are the priority, not adults wedging large metal cages into places they don’t fit.”

Response from County Council

A spokesperson for Gloucestershire County Council said: “We love welcoming visitors into our towns and it’s our job to keep them safe on our roads, especially during busy periods of high traffic.”

“Parking restrictions help us to make sure that appropriate visibility is maintained for all road users as well as access for local businesses, blue badge holders and emergency service vehicles.

“It is not permitted to park or wait on a single yellow line while restrictions apply and anyone caught doing so will receive a penalty charge notice.”
