A motorist who stopped on a yellow line to mark the two minutes' silence on Armistice Day was given a parking ticket.

Anna Whitworth wanted to remember her great-uncle, a navy captain who died when when he went down with his ship during the First World War.

Ms Whitworth told the Times she heard Big Ben strike 11 o'clock on her car radio and pulled over in a quiet street in Kensington.

She said the parking warden gave her a ticket timed at 11.01am.

Kensington and Chelsea Council issued a statement suggesting Ms Whitworth appeal the ticket, but stopping short of an apology.
