Parking blitz council lets mayor off; MOTORING.

THE mayor at a council using controversial CCTV spy camera cars to issue fines has been caught with his official limousine parked illegally.

Mayor of Wirral Andrew Hodson's Jag was pictured on double yellow lines but he escaped a ticket.

A resident snapped the luxury car with the reg WCM 1N - WCM standing for Wirral Council Mayor.

Mr Hodson apologised and blamed his chauffeur.

But a council spokeswoman said: "It is simply illegal to issue a parking ticket based upon a photograph that hasn't been provided by a parking enforcement officer."

A ticket for a driver caught by a mobile council camera was this month ruled illegal because no warning had been posted.
