A woman says her faith in traffic wardens has been "restored" after she returned to her car to find a nice note left on the windscreen.
Penny Cross, 35, was running late for dinner when she couldn't find a parking space.

A traffic warden then appeared to come to her rescue, suggesting a place she could safely leave her car.
According to the Metro, he agreed to let Penny park in a space which, although in a line of 'private parking' spaces, was not labelled as such and she paid for a two-hour stay.
But when she returned from her night out, she found what looked like a parking ticket waiting for her.
However, a closer look revealed that it was actually a nice note left by the friendly ticket inspector, which read: "Hope you had a lovely meal, regards, your friendly traffic warden."
According to The Sun, Penny said: "I was fuming for a good 10 minutes thinking I had been booked after all.
"But then I opened it and found the note and it's restored my faith in traffic wardens."
