One of our contributors – Shirley – happened to be near a pay-station in Camberley’s Main Square Car Park today when it misbehaved and poured cash over the floor. Shirley managed to take a quick photo….
Actually, according to Shirley:
“A young couple hit the jackpot today at 12.15pm on the ground floor of the Mall . As they went to pay, the car parking machine pumped what looked like its entire contents all over the floor. The gentleman called for help and a guy in a black uniform charged down the stairs past me going up!”
Of course, as the council almost certainly isn’t licensed to run a lottery, the more likely explanation is that the pay machine has a conscience and that it decided to repay the council’s excessive parking charges!!
