A commuter who parks at Bedford rail station is fuming after a mix-up which left her with a parking ticket.
Cheryl Harding, from Colmworth, who parks regularly at Bedford, arrived at the station on Monday, February 10 while resurfacing work was going on.
She said: “A man in a yellow reflective jacket waved me and other people into an area that was wide enough to park and said it would be ok.
“There were quite a few people who had parked on undesignated spaces.”
Cheryl was unsure who the man worked for but believes he may have been one of the contractors.
She added: “They had blocked a section of the car park with their vans.
“I thought like everyone else at the time that they were officials.”
When Cheryl returned that evening she had been given a ticket, which will cost her £50 if paid early - and at least six other vehicles had them too.
“I was so annoyed about it. They ought to figure out who is in charge and have a joined up approach.”
A First Capital Connect spokesman said: “We are currently investigating the situation along with our car parking partners.
“In the case of Cheryl Harding, her car was parked on double yellow lines and thus given a parking ticket.
“We are subsequently reviewing her appeal and will be in contact with her once we have finished our investigation.”
