A woman who went to McDonald’s for a breakfast McMuffin ended up paying £100 for her trouble.
She was fuming after realising she’d been fined for parking her car at the Maccies for too long.
Carolyn Welch, 64, from Stafford, went to a MacDonald’s in Warrington in November to have breakfast and was slapped with a £100 fine because her car broke down.
She was forced to stay in the car park for more than 3.5 hours while having her car fixed by a mechanic, who arrived at the scene.

Welch claimed: “The car wouldn’t start, my old car has taken me on many adventures and protests since I bought it new in 2007. It was dead!”
Welch said her husband William informed a McDonald’s staff member that her car had broken down, and they told him it would be ok.

sin embargo, she later received a letter from UKPC with a £100 fine for overstaying by 1.5 horas.
“Bien, I thought that was the end until I opened a letter from UKPC with a £100 fine for overstaying their 1hr 30min parking allowance by being stuck there for almost three and a half hours.
“Even more annoying is that William had informed a staff member that we had broken down and had been assured that would be ok!”
Desafortunadamente, she can’t find the receipt that will prove she had eaten at the fast food restaurant that morning.
“The receipt that came with the meal was thrown in the bin, no doubt I can verify I dined there through the app.
“But by the time I can verify that the AA was in attendance, the £50 discount for paying the fine will have expired,” ella dijo.
