A vehicle in Cheshire West and Chester which has been given 213 parking tickets could be driven by the borough's worst parker.

There are £8,857 paid in fines relating to the vehicle but £5,906 still outstanding at the start of February, the most for any vehicle in the area.

It was followed by one in Cheshire East that has been ticketed 130 times, paying £57 in fines.

The Cheshire parker is not quite up there with its equivalent in Gateshead.

After ranking up 653 parking tickets, and owing the council more than £55,000 in fines, a vehicle in Gateshead could be one of the most consistently poorly parked in the country.

The owner of a vehicle in Ealing has been better at paying the 540 parking tickets it has received, adding £24,839 in fines to the council's coffers.

In London, since October 2014, a vehicle in Westminster has been given 305 tickets, owing the council £35,640.

All figures are a result of Freedom of Information requests to more than 100 councils across major cities in Britain.

The number of fines relate to the numbers issued to an individual vehicle, which may be driven by several people or have changed hands during the period.

Councils may have to write off tickets if they are unable to track owners through the DVLA.
