Motorists accuse council of 'entrapment' over school-run road fines

Motorists have accused a council of 'entrapment' after being stung with £2.6 million in fines for unwittingly driving through a road closure on the school run.

Kingston Council has issued more than 40,000 since it introduced the road closure outside Surbiton High School in November – prompting drivers, many of whom are parents, to complain about the 'unclear' new traffic system.
