A health centre employee is outraged after her appeal to cancel her parking fine has been rejected. Margaret Kidson was late back to her car, overstaying her parking period by 11 minutes – but has had her appeal quashed even after explaining she spent 20 minutes tending to a man who had an epileptic fit in the street.

Kidson, 60, was on her way back to a shopping centre in Erith, south-east London, when she spotted the man collapsed in the street.
