A coach driver who had just dropped off 50 children on a school trip was slapped with a £50 parking fine for stopping just six inches over a white line.
Christopher Wells, 57, from Grimsby, had taken the group of schoolchildren from Broughton Primary to a local fishing centre in Lincolnshire leaving the coach in the deserted car park.
When he returned to the coach only bag he discovered the parking ticket attached to his windscreen wiper.
A frustrated Mr Wells hit out at the fine explaining he was in a coach only bay in an otherwise empty car park.
He said: 'It is very annoying to get a ticket because it's going to have to be paid, and it's going to take half the money from what the bosses made from the contract itself, so the company lose out.
'I think the council is just clutching at straws trying to get every driver they can now. I know some people do park really badly and they have their job to do, but for such a trivial thing like this when it tells you it's a coach parking bay, I don't really see where else you could park.'
