Westminster parking warden parks his CCTV car illegally

This is the moment a London parking warden in a CCTV "spy" car parked on double yellow lines - to go shopping for his dinner.

The warden, working for Westminster council contractor NSL, tried to hide in the queue for the till when he saw Mr Kaba filming him on his mobile phone.

Westminster council today promised to get NSL to investigate. Mr Kaba, 37, a chauffeur from Hampstead, said: "I noticed the car pulling up and saw the warden going inside the store. There's one law for drivers and another for these people who are supposed to uphold the parking rules. "A friend of mine was fined for just stopping for a minute to drop passengers on a single yellow line."

My comment: A clear abuse of his position. Firstly they should be fined as everyone else would have been and then they need to explain themselves at a disciplinary hearing. Some police officers also have a similar attitude when it comes to 'one law for us and one for them'.
