Darwen driver wins ‘bus stop’ fine appeal
11:49am Thursday 21st June 2012 in Darwen
A DRIVER penalised for parking at a disused bus stop has had her ticket cancelled.
Lynn Dewse was shocked to discover the ticket on her car after leaving it outside Holker House, in Railway Road, Darwen.
The bus stop was put up during the revamp of the bus station and has not been used for years.
Lynn, 44, of Marquis Close, Lower Darwen, had appealed against the fine and said it had now been rescinded.
She said: “I would like to thank all the people of Darwen who have supported me, including Councillor Paul Browne.”
Coun Browne said: “I knew it would be cancelled and the decision is quite right. It is a good result.”
He added that he planned to bring up the bus stop issue at the highways and planning committee meeting today in a bid to have it removed completely.
