A POLICEMAN was booked for parking illegally as he sat in a van
trying to catch speeding motorists.
The Pc from Gwent Police was on duty in Cwm, Ebbw Vale, south
Wales, when a member of his force issued him with a £30 fine for parking on a
single yellow line. He had been sitting in a detection vehicle, operated by the
South Wales and Gwent forces, which use speed traps. Gwent said yesterday it
would not comment on details of any matter that could go to court.
