In fact the car had been carefully lifted out of the way for the double yellows to be painted in Gordon Grove in Camberwell, then replaced on the new restrictions by the contractors responsible.
The same day a different set of parking enforcers spotted the 'illegally parked' car, and had it towed away - after photographing it on the newly painted double yellows.
Mrs Ducker had left the runabout without its battery, meaning she knew that it had not been stolen.
She said: 'My little VW disappeared a week before Christmas. I had parked for years on an unrestricted stretch about 40 yards from my home. When I returned on 19 December to replace the battery my car had disappeared and yellow lines had suddenly appeared. There’s no way I could have driven onto those lines.
It took a further two months and the involvement of her local MP Kate Hoey to make the council back down and waive the fines, which by now totalled £2,240.
'I knew that to pay up would be an admission of guilt, so I decided to fight them. But I didn’t get the car back until the middle of February and they offered a paltry £100 to compensate for lost road tax, insurance and inconvenience. Needless to say I still haven’t received a penny.'
Lambeth council blamed a 'breakdown in communication' between its contractors and has now offered Mrs Ducker £150 compensation.
So, I am grateful to read this story as presented by you,
Good for her for fighting it and good for you for posting it, thanks.

I quit being amazed long ago; I quit being angry with the PTB/NWO long ago. The woman in question did what about this situation??? What did anyone do, but here by posting the story....
It's like watching everyone in the neighborhood being taken away. As they go, you say "thank god it was them". Yet, in the end there will be no one to help you.
So, I am grateful to read this story as presented by you, but the woman deserved it. She, and everyone needs to practice civil disobedience, or passive resistance.
Nothing will change without it.
at this stage in the game, thats all we left, civil disobedience, and passive resistance.
