A man was handed a £100 fine after his car caught fire at a car park in Winchester, leaving him stranded.
54-year-old Sergio Mitrano's car engine caught alight and was told to leave the car overnight by his insurance company.
This meant his car was left in the Moorside Retail Park in Winchester for more than the allotted two hour limit.
He was then sent a parking fine by Euro Car Parks for £100 or £60 if he paid within 14 days.
He has since had the fine removed and no longer needs to pay it.
