A driver has been left stunned after returning to his parked car to find yellow lines painted underneath it and a ticket on the windscreen.
When Nasser Khan left his vehicle overnight in Chapel Street, Salford, he was certain he had parked in an unmarked stretch of the road.
So he was left bemused the next morning after discovering he had been handed a ticket for illegal parking.
But workmen had been captured on CCTV crouching underneath the car to paint in the gap, almost melting the tyres on Mr Khan’s car. A waiting parking warden then issued the ticket.
