I overstayed my time limit in the Blyth Morrison’s car park and was promptly issued with a parking Charge Notice for the amount of £85 reducing to £50 if I paid within 14 days.
However, when I went online and tried to pay, they imposed an additional unannounced 70p whether paying by debit card or credit card.
No explanation why a debit card is subject to this surcharge.
I shall of course be changing my supermarket shopping out of Blyth town centre.
So much for the new town centre rejuvenation.
