Clampers are the dregs of society, modern day Dick Turpins that prey on unsuspecting motorists and wrest money from them at any opportunity they can get.

Miss X from Bolton got in touch with me for help after her car was clamped in Lottery Row at the back of Wetherspooons Nelson Square Bolton, it was the night of the rally of the two groups, unite against facism and the english defence league, Miss X had tried to park near Nelson Square but the Police moved her on and told her to find a parking place elsewhere, she parked in lottery row and failed to notice that signs for clamping were deployed very high up on the wall in front of where she parked, but when she returned to her car on Sunday the car had been removed, she telephoned the Clampers and spoke to Danny who told her that her car had been towed away to a compound in Wigan, it was actually parked near a scrap yard on Kirkless Industrial Estate Cale Lane, Danny told Miss X that the Bill would be £500 plus £35 per day storage fees.

I phoned Danny and informed him that I would take him to court if Miss X handed any money over, I arranged to meet him at the location in lottery row, I arrived there early and phoned him again we remonstrated over the phone, at one point he told me that he was on another phone talking to a solicitor, the solicitor turned out to be his mummy, who must have set up Danny and taught him how to screw money out of motorists, but then thats what solicitors do best, Danny clamper refused to meet me, Mummy's knowledge of litigation appears to be somewhat limited, most solicitors have some basic knowledge of litigation but she appears to know nothing, Danny is also a Bouncer and the folk I spoke to around where he clamps say they don't like him.

Miss X phoned me again and informed me that Mummy's boy Danny clamper had said that he would remove the clamps for the initial clamping fee of £150 which she didn't agree with. £150 to clamp and £250 are excessive and this sum is deemed as a punishment, only the state have the legal authority to punish anyone in this country, I informed Miss X that if she had to pay the £150 then do it and I will still take him to court, no judge worth his salt will allow anyone to have to pay £150 for a parking contravention. especially by an emotive subject of clamping.
On Friday Miss X phoned me and told me that Mummy's boy Danny said that he would release the clamp for free provided that she signed a waiver not to take him to court, we arrived at the location at 1815 hrs, Miss X's mum had already been to the location to recce the area during the day, so she knew where the car was parked, but Clamper Danny didn't know this, Danny clamper was already there, he produced a piece of paper with notes on it stating that the clamp would be removed only if Miss X signed the waiver, Bully boy Danny clamper had told me that his Solicitor mummy had made out the letter, not well up on the law then is she, she should have known that one cannot sign away your rights under duress in this country and it is Blackmail to ask anyone to sign something under duress, the definition is as follows:
The exertion of pressure or threats, especially unfairly, in an attempt to influence someone's actions. and To attempt to influence the actions of (a person) by unfair pressure or threats.
I phoned the police but theyt said it was a civil action, they are wrong.

The clamp was eventually removed only to find that the car wouldn't move because the handbrake was stuck on, Danny clamper had to find a mechanic to free off the brakes so it could be driven. Danny clamper was given the invoice before we left.

Danny clamper had no lawful right to move the vehicle from lottery row, he did it to free up the space so another fly could get caught in his expensive trap, there are three criteria that a car can be removed lawfully, these are:

1. Dangerously parked

2. Causing an obstruction

3. Blocking an emergency exit

The car was not causing any of these three criteria, so why was it towed away? was it to make room for another sucker, I believe it was, if it did not meet the criteria and Danny Clamper removed the car then it is theft. Miss X was deprived of her car for six days because of Danny Clamper's unlawful actions, Danny Clamper told Miss X that had it been an older car the charges wouldn't have been as high, this is surely unlawfull, at the time of writing this I have just come off the phone speaking to Danny Clamper who said I must stop harrassing him because earlier I had phoned him to ask him for his SIA number which he has refused to supply me with, he had already given me the number but when I entered it onto the SIA website it was refused, I believe he gave me the wrong number on purpose, Danny clamper put the phone down on me so I phoned again this time his mummy answered, she is supposed to be a solicitor and by the way she spoke to me I do not believe she is a solicitor, she was extremely rude and wouldn't allow me to get a word in edgeways, she said she was recording the call, I will put in a subject access request to get a copy, she repeated that she would report me for harrassment, I have now reported the incident of the clamping to the Independent Police Authority, who will now investigate why the Police took no action when I phoned them on Friday last regarding Danny Clamper forcing Miss X to sign a waiver under Duress.
Danny Clamper charges £35 a day for storage for keeping the vehicle on Kirkless Industrial Estate, clamped vehicles are not even kept in a secure compound.

Tree with a preservation order saves £60 parking fine...(click on pics to enlarge them)

After a TV programme I appeared in some months ago on North West Tonight regarding parking in Bolton a Mrs Halpin from Sefton Borough saw it and got in touch with me, she told me she was taking her disabled child to the doctors but there was no parking spaces on the surgery car park (sounds familiar) she parked outside on Double yellows and took her son into the Doctors, she made sure he was safe and returned to the car to move it, but a Parking Attendant was already issuing a Parking Ticket, Mrs Halpin explained to the parking attendant what she had done, but he just said you can stay there for 24 hours now, you can only get one ticket every 24 hours. Mrs Halpin sent informal mitigating representations to Sefton Parking Services but her pleas for mitigation were turned down by Mrs S. Lynn from parking services informing Mrs Halpin that the PCN was issued correctly and Pay up or appeal.
I asked Mrs Halpin for pictures of the area where she got the ticket and found that the kerb tab on the double yellow lines (no loading between certain times) was badly faded, but more significant was the upright signplate which though carrying the correct diagram for the restriction was covered by foliage, it is not a motorists job to hunt around for sign plates showing the restrictions and certainly not her job to move foliage about to read the sign, the council sneakily sent Mrs Halpin pics of part of the yellow kerb tabs which were in good repair and the picture of the sign plate (above) however it transpires that the Tree had a preservation order on it and presumably that was why it was overgrowing the sign, but how many parking Tickets were issued where this sign is, not to mention the lies on the letter from Mrs E. Morriss stating that she was cancelling the ticket on the original representations from Mrs Halpin, sorry but it is Hogwash had Mrs Halpin not asked for my help, Sefton Council would have taken £70 off Mrs Halpin without batting an eyelid, so I accuse Sefton parking services of lying to Mrs Halipin regarding her initial appeal to the Council, Why did the Council not cancel the ticket after Mrs Halpin wrote to them with advice from me what to put, its because they were caught with their hands in the till, Sefton Council join the ever increasing list of lying corrupt councils who are interested in only screwing what they can from vulnerable folk.
Mrs S. Lynn should now do the honourable thing and resign along with Mrs Morriss, the public want only public servants who do the right thing first time, not after they have been caught out.

Alan Eastwood Legal Services Director, Bolton Council.

Alan Eastwood (left) Director of Legal Services and Sean Harriss (right) Chief executive of Bolton Council. Mr Alan Eastwood is the main Protagonist in denying anyone with a claim for restitution of a Penalty charge paid since September 2000 up to and including August 2nd 2006, all of Bolton Councils parking tickets were illegal between those dates.

Printed here is a recent Freedom of Information request from a friend to Bolton Council on these illegal parking tickets.

Request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000

In response to your request for information received at this office on 10 December 2007, Bolton Council is happy to supply the following information. I regret that we were not able to provide this information within the statutory deadline which was 10 January 2008; thank you for your patience in this matter.

You requested the following:

003.1 a The Number of Penalty Charge Notices issued between: the 3rd August 2006 and the 22nd August 2006 inclusive.

Answer: 2182 parking tickets.

003.1 b The number paid and their total value

Answer: 1,342 totalling £41,170

003.1 c The number that went to Bailiff stage

Answer: 0 PCN’s went to Bailiff stage.

What happened to the other 840 parking tickets valued at £25,762

Bolton Council knew those 2182 parking tickets to be illegally issued as a result of a high court ruling which every council operating Decriminalised Parking Enforcement were awaiting the outcome of, this case law now known as Barnet v Moses deemed that all parking tickets with only one date were non compliant, Bolton Council are Corrupt and are made corrupt by a very small minority of the people who run the the council, Bolton Council Legal Dept knew the tickets were not compliant yet fraudulently obtained £41,170 in 20 days from illegally issued Parking Tickets. Mr Alan Eastwood and Mr Sean Harriss the Chief Executive are refusing to give that money back to the people they took it off despite the fact that it was illegally derived income, this is known as unjust enrichment and the council must pay it back now.
Now you can see just who are the culprits for not giving back more than £6.5 million every penny of this taken illegally since September 2006, to 22nd August 2006.

If you paid for a parking fine between September 2006, to 22nd August 2006 then you are legally entitled to your money back.

Bolton council cave in on Pilkington v Bolton Council review

Bolton Council have done a U turn on the Pilkington v Bolton Council review which they lost in March, after speaking to the Traffic Penalty Tribunal (Formally NPAS)I asked yesterday why was there a delay with this review, I was informed by their appeals Coordinator that Bolton Council were no longer contesting the review, the coordinator was surprised that neither Mr Pilkington or myself had been informed of the decision, she said that the Council should have informed us both of their decision a month ago, sheer incompetence and complaceny from both the Council and the TPT, so nothing new there then, both the Council and the TPT are supposed to inform the appellant and anyone acting on their behalf of these decisions, I have asked legal services for confirmation of this U-Turn but at the time of writing nothing has been received. No reason was given for the climb down.

Bolton Council apply for a review of the David Pilkington -v- Bolton Council appeal

Bolton Council have applied for a review of the David Pilkington -v- Bolton Council appeal which was heard in March (see below).
They have gone bleating to Mr John Hunter Barrister from Kings Chambers in Manchester who has been dusted down and brought out of the cupboard yet again By Alan Eastwood in the Legal dept to waste Bolton taxpayers money, he really does chuck our money around like Confetti, this will be another wasted £1000 to add to the other £2000 already wasted for bringing in Barristers who do not have a clue about the parking Laws, yes Mr Hunter I mean you.

NEW LOADIND BAY, Atherton, Wigan

United Utilities have been digging up Atherton town centre, Wigan Borough, for over a month , they are now in the throes of completing the reinstatement works of the road, only problem is they got someone to repaint the loading Bay who must have lost his Spellchecker in the trench, either that or they phoned Bolton Council to ask the Highways and Engineering dept how to spell this very difficult word, anyway this is how your money is spent and ultimately wasted.
