Millions of pounds worth of unpaid parking fines have to be written off each year by councils unable to trace drivers of foreign vehicles, according to the Local Government Association.

Some councils have had to rip up thousands of parking tickets. One local authority – Brighton & Hove Council – is owed more than £750,000.

The EU allows European vehicles to drive on UK roads for six months before having to register with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.
