A motorist has been left with a total bill of almost £2,000 after abandoning her vehicle in Hull city centre.

The Hull City Council prosecution is part of an ongoing campaign to keep the city clean.

Hull magistrates fined Beverley Kelsey £400, while she also received a £40 victim surcharge and was ordered to pay the council £1,524 costs. These included vehicle scrapping and removal fees, bringing the total to £1,964.

Kelsey, of Hull’s Benedict Road, not only failed to pay any of the eight parking tickets, she also did not attend her case on Friday December 12.

The local authority was first told that the untaxed car was illegally parked along Richmond Street on September 9.

John Hewitt, a Hull councillor with responsibility for neighbourhoods and communities, called such discarded vehicles a blight.

The council urged members of the public to report abandoned vehicles on its 01482 300 300 hotline.
