A woman has been ordered by a sheriff to pay a private parking company £24,500 in unpaid charges. Carly Mackie ignored hundreds of penalty notices for parking at Dundee's Waterfront without a permit, claiming they were unenforceable. Ms Mackie said that she had a right to park in the area as she was living there at the time. Sheriff George Way said the charges were from a "valid contract" and she was liable for them. Vehicle Control Services (VCS) took the 28-year-old to court last year after she failed to pay £18,500 in private parking notices.
