Police riot van caught parking in disabled bay
A Nottinghamshire police officer has been slapped with a parking ticket, after parking a riot van in a disabled bay.
Eight police officers left the vehicle and visited a Taco Bell restaurant to buy burritos - but were spotted by an outraged local man, whose partner is disabled.
He sent photographs to Nottinghamshire Police, who later confirmed that the officer who had been driving the van had been given a fixed penalty notice.
"If it was an emergency I wouldn't mind but they were just going in to get some burritos. I made a fuss because it's one rule for us and other for them," Stephen Roberts, 42, said
"What made it even worse is there's a new police station just three minutes walk from there, with reserved spaces and everything."
