PARKING enforcers have taken 20 vehicles off the streets.

Cars with no tax, those with more than five unpaid penalty charge notices and vehicles suspected of being involved in blue badge fraud were removed.

Portsmouth City Council ran the operation on Friday and Saturday in the city.

Councillor Jim Fleming, cabinet member for traffic and transportation, watched on.

He said: ‘In some areas of the city considerable pressure on parking exists, so it is important to ensure that people who park in contravention are penalised.

‘The operation at the weekend gave me insight into the role of the enforcement officers and it was good to see action being taken against inconsiderate owners.’
