I dropped my daughter and her very poorly baby at A &E. I found a payable parking space near the A&E department and proceeded to make payment. However, I could not see the screen to enter my registration number. This was late evening and a very dark winters night. I proceeded to another pay machine and had the very same problem ( I do hope the cameras are efficient enough to pick my movements up). At this stage, I proceeded inside A&E to assist my daughter with a very distressed baby. I was certainly not trying to avoid paying car parking charges in any shape or form. I have now received a car parking fine for £70 which I will be appealing against. It may be an Estates issue they the lighting was not working on that particular evening but I would be grateful if you could clarify why the lighting on or around the machines was not working on that particular evening.
