Man finds out his car was used by ‘meet and greet’ worker when he receives £160 fine

Scott received images of his car being parked illegally outside a school in London

A man from Leicestershire discovered a 'meet and greet' airport worker had allegedly used his car 'for the school run' when he got a £165 parking fine.

Scott Baines left his car at Heathrow Airport in February while he flew to Finland for work.

But the 34-year-old was shocked to receive a £165 fine when he returned, after his car was parked illegally while he was away.

The CCTV evidence shows that his BMW was parked outside a school in London, leading Scott to suspect the parking attendant had used his car to drop off their children.

Scott, a football coach, said: "I was completely horrified at the fact that someone has been carrying children in the back of my car when I know they are not insured, but also the penalties I incur now is a £165 fine.

"It is not only parking on the zig zags, he is also parked on the pavement outside a school which obviously is a danger to the children."

The company, Central Airport Parking, declined to comment.

We work closely with both APCOA (Heathrow's car park operator) and the Met. Police to address car parking operators who do not give passengers the best possible service.

We strongly encourage passengers to exercise care and to use British Parking Association accredited services.

All Official Heathrow Parking products are kept safely and securely within the perimeter of the airport to give passengers the best possible airport experience.
