Look below and see if you can spot which party naughty councillor Bruce de Saram belongs to! Hint: he isn’t Labour, Lib Dem, Green or Independent!
“The [Tory] deputy mayor of Exmouth has apologised for a ‘regrettable’ decision to illegally park in a disabled bay.
Councillor Bruce de Saram [Tory] apologised after his car was spotted parked in the disabled bay at the town hall car park.
Pictures show the Littleham [Tory] councillor’s car with a ‘deputy mayor on duty’ sign in the window taken on Thursday, March 7, this year.
Cllr de Saram [Tory] told The Journal he parked in the bay as he was attending a meeting at the town hall and received a fine on his return to his vehicle.
He said the fine was paid ‘promptly’ out of his own income and has treated the incident as a learning experience.
“I regret any inconvenience I caused by parking there and this is a learning experience for me,” he said.
Disabled bays in the UK are reserved for official ‘blue badge’ carriers and it is illegal to park in one without a permit.”
