Traffic wardens have been instructed to let all drivers get away with parking on yellow lines and in disabled bays in certain parts of Berkhamsted High Street.

It is understood that tickets they issue on the town centre road may not be legally enforceable due to an administrative slip-up made by Herts County Council in 1990.

Ruth Chasen, senior support officer for the authority’s highways department, said that parking fines must be supported by the relevant Traffic Regulation Order (TRO), signs where appropriate and lines.
