A driver from Spalding in Lincolnshire was surprised to get a penalty for driving in a bus lane in Sheffield - not least because he'd never been there. Fortunately the penalty notice came with a photograph which it claimed showed him during the offence: the photograph attached was of one of the council's own sweeping machines.

So what happened, and what can you do if you are a victim of mistaken identity?
