A parked car belonging to an imprisoned man cannot be moved whilst he is in jail because he has a blue badge, a council has said.
The vehicle, which is said to belong to David Marks, has been reportedly sat outside Croydon Crown Court for months after Mr Marks parked there to attend his own hearing.
Local residents have now raised questions over the car, asking why it has been allowed to take up the disabled bay for so long, despite no one using it.
But the council has confirmed it has no intentions of moving the vehicle as it parked there legally.
The Smart car has been sitting outside the court since Mr Marks, from Bromley, was jailed earlier this year.
He reportedly drove the car to court where he was sentenced for racially or religiously aggravated harassment. After being found guilty of one count and pleading guilty to a second he was jailed for 12 months on April 13.
And no, we don’t have exceptions. It’s legal, on your way then matey. That he’s in jail, on holiday, simply wants to leave his car where it’s legally parked? It’s legally parked and there’s an end to it.
