Parking Mad, Series 1 Episode 1 of 4

Duration: 1 hour

As the squeeze on parking spaces continues, this series follows wardens under pressure, bailiffs, drivers and motorists fighting back. We film the winners and losers in hard-fought parking disputes. We watch as councils and bailiffs go after the non-payers, taking cars away and leaving some motorists well and truly stranded.

In this episode, Mr Mustard helps a 93-year-old man appeal against a fine he's been given by Barnet Council. Elsewhere, at a roadside operation run jointly with the police, bailiff Debbie has to confiscate a van. In Lincoln, we meet the team dealing with parking in an increasingly busy city centre. Residents in a quiet Sussex village take direct action to stop London commuters parking on their road, which happens to be right next to the station. And in Devon, a businessman develops the world's first talking parking ticket.
