An Essex chip shop owner has lost an appeal at the UK's highest court over parking charges.
Barry Beavis, 47, of Chelmsford, launched legal action against private car park operators after he was charged £85 for overstaying his allotted two hours of free parking by nearly an hour.
He previously had his challenge dismissed at a county court and the Court of Appeal, and suffered a further defeat at the Supreme Court.
Mr Beavis, who owns The Happy Haddock chip shop in Billericay, Essex, was charged by management company ParkingEye after overstaying the permitted period of free parking at the Riverside Retail Park car park in Chelmsford in April 2013.
ParkingEye says its charges are "fair, reasonable and legally enforceable".
