Grandmother Maxine Horton with the fine.<br />
<br />
A grandmother who was fined £100 for staying in a fast food restaurant car park for 18 minutes too long has won her appeal.<br />
<br />
Maxine Horton was penalised after parking for one hour and 18 minutes outside a KFC in Poole, Dorset, when she took her grandchildren there for a treat meal.<br />
<br />
The parking penalty from Euro Car Parks stated she had been in contravention of the Wessex Gate retail park's car park one hour limit.<br />
<br />
But it has now been quashed after Mrs Horton wrote to the head of KFC to tell him it was 'virtually impossible' to get a group of children to pick a meal, eat it and use the toilets in that restricted timeframe.
