A Kingston woman has admitted to misusing a disabled person's parking card (otherwise known as a blue badge) six times.
Mrs. Patrick was seen using her car in Kingston Town Centre in March when officers from the Royal Borough of Kingston's Internal Audit and Investigation Service were conducting an operation on blue badge misuse.
The blue badge was originally given to an 86 year old in Bath and Somerset.
Mrs. Patrcik was ordered to pay a fine of £235 for the first offence, and £60 for the subsequent 5, as well as prosecution costs of £360 and a £15 victim surcharge - making a total of £910.
Investigations into CCTV footage revealed she was using the badge on a regular basis whilst working in Kingston Town Centre.
