A CAR is to be fitted with cameras and used to catch out motorists who park illegally across Barnsley. The vehicle will also have number plate recognition technology.

It will be used in areas plagued by illegal parking, including outside school gates.

The initiative has been criticised by the AA and the Taxpayers’ Alliance offshoot Big Brother Watch, but Councillor May Noble said: “The vehicle has been proven in other parts of the country to change the behaviour of inconsiderate drivers.”
