HAVING not visited the council parking sites in Leasowe since last year, I had occasion to use one recently.

I was not surprised to see the new machines installed with 'new' prices to pay for them and inserted the correct money for the time allotted and the instructions read press the 'OK' button from five options.

There is no ‘OK’ button to press.

I inevitably pressed the wrong one and had to ask a fellow motorist which was the correct one.

I ended up paying twice.

Is this a further scheme by mercenary Wirral Council to extract further revenue from their favourite cash cows – motorists.

How many have been duped by this underhand practice?
