Disabled motorist Peter Simpson has been left unnerved after police revealed they have no record of officers visiting his home after a complaint.

The Post revealed on Tuesday how the 76-year-old had been visited at home in Fulwood after challenging a woman for wrongly parking in a disabled bay at Tesco Express in Longsands Lane.

He said: “All I said to her was she was very inconsiderate parking there. Two hours later I got the shock of my life when two bobbies turned up at my front door saying there had been a complaint.”

Now the retired driver, who once chauffeured Lancashire’s Chief Constable around, said he is concerned about how the officers knew address, after the force said there was no report of a visit to his home, and told him the Police National Computer hadn’t been searched for his car registration details.

He said: “It’s worrying me. How have they got my address? Have I been followed home, or is this lady connected to the police somehow?

“I’m at home on my own and my wife is in a care home. It’s weird and disturbing. It’s making me wonder who is going to turn up on my doorstep next.”

He added: “When my wife’s watch was stolen and I reported it, an officer came to take the details and left me with a reference number. I was expecting something similar with this, but got nothing. I should have taken the collar numbers of the officers, but I was caught off guard.”

Mr Simpson said he asked to speak to a senior officer at Lancaster Road police station, but was unable to see anyone.

He said: “If I don’t hear of them (the police) in the next couple of days, then I will be making a complaint.”

Lancashire Constabulary have been contacted for a response.
