A video has emerged which features a traffic warden giving a ticket to a taxi driver, only moments after he had pulled up to let out an elderly disabled woman at an M & S in Chelmsford, Essex.
The warden ignores the driver when he asks: “You’re giving me a ticket for dropping off a disabled lady?”
The customer objects to the warden’s actions, saying he is a “nasty person” and asking “don’t you think he should have had some warning?”
A spokesperson for Chelmsford Council said: “Parking enforcement exists to uphold the law and to keep our highways clear of obstruction so that they can be used and shared by all road users. It is about fairness, and the same rules apply to all.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
