Police officers were out and about patrolling with Parking Enforcement Officers in Swindon.

The officers were out patrolling in Manchester Road and Broad Green who were targeting drivers parking in a dangerous manner.

Tickets were given to the drivers that parked on zig-zag lines, double yellow lines and double yellow kerb markings.

Motorists parking on zig-zag lines can expect to be fined £100 with three points on their licence if they are caught by the police.

Penalty charge notices increase by 50 per cent if drivers don't pay in time.

A driver was also issued a ticket after it was caught using a mobile phone while driving.

A recent Freedom of Information act parking penalties cost Brits £530 million in the last four years, from 14 million fines issued by the councils that were contacted.
