Parking attendant assaulted in Northwich

First published in News

A PARKING attendant was assaulted by the driver of a van he was issuing a ticket to in Northwich.

The incident happened in Weaver Way at 11am on Saturday, April 5.

The male parking officer was issuing a ticket to an illegally parked white van when the driver returned and punched him in the arm before driving off.

The driver is described as a large, stocky male in their fifties. They had a shaved head and a blue, checked top.

Officers from Cheshire West and Chester Council took over jurisdiction of parking offences from the police in November 2013.

A police spokesman said: “It is unacceptable that this person, who was simply going about his job, has been subjected to this kind of violence.

“We would urge anyone with information to call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Needs more than a fine for an assault, it obviously needs lessons in how to behave!

People have got used to parking illegally in Northwich for years and got away with it. It's time they parked legally. Assaulting the warden is despicable, the person involved should be severely fined.

Anyone found guilty of assaulting a public servant should have extra tax docked from their pay. This will help fund the gold plated pensions of the public sector.

To all those who park illegally....it appears that Northwich has a camera car...it was parked next to me in the car park behind M & S!! Nippier than the traffic wardens and it's up periscope!! I have also seen it in Barnton, where the double yellow lines have just been re-painted by the shops on Lydyett Lane. You have been warned!
