A Lancashire police officer has been filmed handing out £10 to a female driver after she was caught parking in a private parking bay trying to evade payment.
Even though the driver was a known persistent nuisance driver in the area, who regularly parks of private property without permission, the police officer tried to assist her ‘make off‘ without paying for her parking fee.
When challenged by the property owner, the police officer became offensive, saying; “You are doing my head in” and calling the land owner “Weird” for asking him to leave his property.
When the officer was told to get off the private property, the officer requested to see the deeds to the property!
He was told he has no right, so the officer purposely, like a child, sat on the bonnet of the land owners car trying to instigate a reaction.
After being told to get off the car, the officer looked at the car and said “It doesn’t look like it is owned by anyone?” then began to case the car over, presumable ready to make up a malicious allegation. Fortunately for the officer, he didn’t!
Rather than leave the scene which was a civil matter, the police persisted to trespass.
The officer then sneakily (of camera) handed the female driver £10 in cash so she could pay her fine and leave, this was after he tried to assist her make off without paying.
