Some clampers have no common sense or heart. I know it's a job that someone has to do, otherwise our roads would be parked up all over the place, but really some people are taking the mickey.
A meals-on-wheels van was clamped recently while doing the rounds taking meals to elderly and vulnerable people in Poole, Dorset.
The staff member returned to their vehicle after dropping of some meals to individuals in a sheltered accommodation block, when they found their van had been clamped and apparently required £125 to have it removed.
The meals-on-wheels company had previously had problems with the over-zealous clamping firm.
One of the people who work for the meals-on-wheels delivery company stated, ""I had this guy on the phone demanding £125 for the vehicle's release so the driver could complete their rounds.
"I wanted to make sure he fully understood he was holding up meals for vulnerable adults in the community.
"Some of these people have dementia, some have diabetes and need to have food with their medication at specific times.
"This could have proved detrimental to their health."
I'm pleased to tell you that the clamp was removed free-of-charge in the end. Hopefully all the people waiting for their meals to be delivered had their food on time.
