A mum-of-two who took a car parking company to court over a 50p parking ticket has finally won the legal battle after five years.

Janet Smith was issued a parking fine on November 17, 2016, at Closter's car park in Formby Village, Liverpool, spotting the ticket on her windshield after returning from her weekly art group.

Janet claimed the ticket she had purchased to park in the car park had fallen off of the windscreen and onto the dashboard while she had been in her art group and she was subsequently fined £100 by Vehicle Control Services for "not displaying her ticket correctly", Liverpool Echo reports.

Janet said: "I received a letter from them which said as the ticket wasn't displayed correctly upon coming into the car park they said I had entered into a contract and I had breached it.
