Ash White, 22, got six tickets for leaving his car outside the town hall, but had got them overturned on legal technicalities.

Officials admitted at least two were invalid as the words "Mayor's car" were painted inside the bay in Cheltenham, Glos.

The county council re-painted them outside but Mr White used the same spot.

Parking law expert Nigel Wise, who helped him fight his first tickets, said: "There's no such thing as a priority space for the mayor. They are putting up restrictions willy-nilly."
