EVERYTHING at Asda is cheap, the company claims, apart from one thing – its parking tickets.

Emma Watson visited the Chaucer Road store in Parson Cross earlier this month and popped back later in the day for a few forgotten items.

So far, so cheap.

But on Saturday she got a parking ticket demanding £40 with photos of her car allegedly overstaying the time limit.

Emma, of Deerlands Mount, Parson Cross, said: “I was stunned when I got the ticket through the post.

“There’s no way I overstayed.”

Her uncle John Thompson went down to the store for an explanation and says he was told by a manager that the cameras were not working properly.

He said: “How many people have been issued tickets wrongly?”

Action

ASDA has refunded the ticket and apologised - but it insists the cameras are working properly.

A spokeswoman said: “We apologise for any confusion we caused Emma, and have refunded her parking ticket.

“We can confirm the cameras in the car park at Parson Cross are not malfunctioning.”
