A young motorist caught parking with her dead grandmother’s blue badge told investigators: “I’m using it in her honour.”

Emily Davis, 21, was stopped while using the disabled person’s badge to park in her Mini One in St George’s Square, Portsea, Hants.

Quizzed by a Portsmouth City Council investigator she first claimed her grandmother was shopping nearby.

But in truth, her grandmother Elizabeth Davis died in September 2014 – nearly a year before Davis was caught.

Now she has been fined £750 with an extra £360.20 to pay on top in costs.
