Is this PROOF private parking firms ARE scamming motorists? Drivers say timings on photos have been doctored so legally parked cars can get issued with fines

Drivers say timings on photos have been doctored so legally parked cars get fined

At least four motorists say they have been stung with a fine after parking in private car parks, despite having left the site well within the allotted time. The drivers claim that, when they asked for photographic evidence, they were sent images that show their vehicle in the car park at a time it was not there. UK Parking Control, the private company embroiled in the row, is now being investigated over the claims. Action Fraud confirmed that a report into the firm's practices were being investigated by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau. The British Parking Association, a trade body, added that it had launched a probe has vowed to issue a 'scheme of sanctions' if the 'tampering' allegations are proved. One of the drivers affected was Neil Horton, who claims he was given a ticket after parking his car in a UKPC site for just 15 minutes - despite the car park providing 90 minutes for free. When he received photographic evidence over the fine, the pictures suggested he had left his vehicle at the site in Newcastle-under-Lyme for almost two hours. But Mr Horton is convinced the images were in fact taken at the same time - because they both feature the same car in the background with its boot open.

'This is what a tiny pill can do to you': Teenager who was left in a wheelchair with slurred speech after an ecstasy tablet put her in a coma releases video of how her life has changed

Ecstasy left a Glasgow teen wheelchair with slurred speech after a coma

Amy Thomson's life was altered beyond recognition after she collapsed at an 'ecstasy party' in June at a house in Glasgow. The 16-year-old (pictured right before the incident) was in a critical condition and spent weeks fighting for her life at Glasgow South hospital. Her family has now released a video which shows how far the schoolgirl has come since waking up for a coma - but also the devastating effect that the 'tiny pill' had on her brain and body. The footage, which her cousin described as an 'eye-opener', shows Amy sat in a garden in her wheelchair, before slurring the words: 'Thank you, thank you everyone.' She also lifts her hand and gives the camera a slow wave (pictured left). Despite the drug damaging the young girl's brain and body, Amy's family believe that, with the continued help of medics, she can continue to make progress.

Is Banksy working as a parking attendant at his own theme park? Man bearing striking resemblance to the secretive street artist is spotted at Dismaland 

Dismaland Parking attendant bears a striking resemblance to Banksy

EXCLUSIVE: MailOnline can reveal the star's fans are speculating whether he may have surfaced in daylight - posing as a parking warden (left) at his Dismalandpark in Weston-Super-Mare. A staff member who claims to have met the guerrilla graffiti artist admitted the likeness between the two men is striking and said: 'This is exactly the sort of thing Banksy would do'. Insiders in the art world have claimed there is compelling evidence suggesting that the artist is former public schoolboy Robin Gunningham, from Bristol, who is believed to be 41. The only concrete clue to his identity until now has been a photograph taken in Jamaica around 11 years ago of a man with a bag of spray cans and a stencil by his feet (right). Although the Dismaland parking warden clearly looks older than a man in his early forties, he shares many of the same facial features as Mr Gunningham and also has an earring in his left ear.

Charlotte Proudman at centre of LinkedIn sexism row speaks out

High-flying barrister Charlotte Proudman, 27, (pictured) said she had also received threats after circulating the 'offensive' message she was sent by father-of-two Alex Carter-Silk, 57, (inset) online. But she said she 'very much doubted' the incident would affect the career of Mr Carter-Silk, the solicitor who complimented her 'stunning' photograph on professional networking site LinkedIn. The 57-year-old, whose eldest daughter is the same age as Miss Proudman, said she should 'win a prize' for her picture which he called the 'best I have ever seen' on the site.
