Apologies for the NRR post.

Is anyone on here in the legal profession or has experience of appealing a parking fine?

A friend received a parking fine for overstaying at a motorway services, stupidly ignored all letters from the parking company and now has a solicitors letter threatening taking the matter to the county court.

They and I have read the excellent Money Saving Expert guide and forum but can't see what to do if someone hasn't appealed the charge and now has a solicitors letter.

If you can help please can you PM me? Many Thanks
