A woman who used her dead mother's blue badge to illegally park in a disabled bay has been ordered to pay £200 in fines and costs.
Bhinder Bhomra of West Park Close, Heston, appeared at Feltham Magistrates' Court last week where she pleaded guilty to illegally parking in Holloway Street car park in Hounslow.
At first, Bhomra claimed to Hounslow council civil enforcement officers who were checking blue badges while on regular patrol, the badge she displayed belonged to her friend who she calls "mother".
An investigation and an interview later, Bhomra admitted the badge she used was in fact her dead mother's.
