Nurses face losing their homes after court rules they must pay up to £150,000 EACH in parking fines run up at the NHS hospital where they work

‘Nurses and doctors have been ordered to pay £12.8million in fines for parking at the NHS hospital where they work.

Staff at University Hospital of Wales face having to sell their homes after losing a legal fight over the unpaid tickets.

One nurse owes £150,000 in outstanding fines after a court ruled £128 must be paid for every unpaid ticket, plus £26,000 in court fees, The Sun reported.

More than 100,000 unpaid tickets have been racked up, meaning staff owe £12.8million to car park owners Indigo.

The hospital has 6,000 staff but the car park has only 1,800 spaces, so many have to park in spots reserved for visitors. Staff, some of whom earn just £15,100, decided they would veto payment of any fines in protest at the lack of spaces.’
