Tuesday, May. 29th 2018 7:25 AM

The Gala Bingo club in Bristol has made an apology to ‘hundreds’ of it’s patrons after between 300 and 500 members received parking fines in the post! It appears that after hiring an enforcement company in a bid to curb rogue parking, club members have been on the receiving end of fines.
