Parking row store takes Mail off shelves
Written byHELEN KREFT
Morrisons, in Coppice Side, Swadlincote, cleared Thursday's edition from its shelves after a front page article included claims from a Swadlincote driver who said the store's parking fines were unenforceable.
Barbara Hall, of Pennine Way, who contacted the Mail after being sent a £40 fine from parking management company Parking Eye, claimed the penalties were only enforceable if issued by the police or local authority.
Morrisons told the Mail that the decision to withdraw the newspaper was made at 'store level' and was later overturned once head office became involved.
A Morrisons spokesman said: "A decision was made at store level which was rectified as soon as we became aware of it."
The Mail understands that the edition was back on the shelves by 2pm too late for some customers to buy a copy.
