Ahsan Haji, 33, from Leyton, East London, was slapped with a £100 parking fine following a trip to a petrol station to use the car wash. He claims he waited in line for 45 minutes to clean his vehicle at his local BP garage on March 19.

Alongside his family, he waited and then drove off without a second thought.

However, a week later he received a parking ticket, demanding he pay £100 to Euro Car Parks for outstaying the 25 minute limit.

The dad-of-three appealed the fine, but is still waiting to hear back from the company.

He insists he will not be paying the parking fine, slamming the situation and calling it “unacceptable”.

Mr Haji said: “We never parked – we were in the queue the whole time.#

“There were six or seven cars in the queue with us who would have also been issued a fine.

“I absolutely should not have to pay that.

“They should be ashamed of themselves.”

Last month Ahsan visited the car wash with his wife Linda Goslar, 31, and their three sons aged eight, five and three.

They did not realise anything was wrong until they received a letter detailing a £100 fine from Euro Car Parks.

Ahsan said he “couldn’t believe it” when he received the letter.

The letter reads: “We are using cameras to capture images of vehicles entering and leaving the car park to calculate their length of stay.
