A parking warden ignored a handwritten note from a car owner asking to be spared a ticket while they are self-isolating.
A car owner left a handwritten plea on their windscreen in Haringey, north London, asking a parking warden not to give them a ticket.
The driver explained in the note that they had been forced to self-isolate while waiting for the results of their coronavirus test, The Sun reported.
But a shocked passerby saw a penalty charged envelope had been issued and stuck next to the note, which had been tucked behind the car’s windscreen wipers.

The ticket was thought to be issued by a parking warden on Friday afternoon.
The polite note left by the car owner read: ‘Dear warden, we are back in isolation waiting on CO19 test results.
‘Please do not give us a ticket. Thank you.’
But the car was still slapped with a parking warden despite the car owner’s plea.
Oli Winton shared the picture of the car on Twitter, writing: ‘Traffic wardens…’
One follower responded: ‘No surprise from those pondlife powertrip weirdos, so irritating.’
In England, people must immediately self-isolate if they have Covid symptoms, have tested positive for coronavirus or come into contact with anyone who has the virus.

Residents also have to self-isolate if they are told to do so by Test and Trace or the NHS Covid-19 app, according to the latest government guidance.
Certain travel restrictions also mean individuals arriving in the UK from a high-risk country must self-isolate for 14 days.
Britons must also stay home while they are waiting for a home test kit, or a test site appointment and continue to do so until they receive a negative test result.
If the individual receives a positive test result, they must continue to self-isolate for 10 days from when the symptoms started, or when the test was taken.
