Driver Jonathan Palgrave, who was slapped with a bus lane fine on the Wicker after a Sheffield Council road sweeper was mistaken for his kit car, has had the penalty notice overturned.

“The ticket has now been cancelled and we apologise for the confusion,” a council spokeswoman said.

“If the gentleman had contacted us as soon as he received the penalty notice, we would have cancelled it immediately.”
