Have your say

AN MP has stepped up the battle against Cosham wheel clampers after people’s appeals against their

parking penalties were dismissed by the company.

Motorists had sent letters appealing to City Watch after they were clamped and fined £205 for parking without a ticket at a car-park behind High Street, Cosham.

But the clamping firm have been sending back their letters unopened.

They had been delivered but have been sent back with a return to sender notice.

Penny Mordaunt, MP for Portsmouth North, said eight people had called her to say their appeals had been ignored.

She said: ‘People have had their letters, which they sent by recorded delivery, delivered back to them unopened. It’s appalling because they have a right to appeal.

‘I urge them to send a copy of their letters to the land owner Lee Baron Limited.

‘I have asked for a meeting with them to put a stop to this situation.’
