Worshippers' fury over parking tickets
by Sarah Hilley
Muslims are appealing for traffic wardens to spare them parking tickets while they pray for an hour on Fridays.
Members of the mosques in Manchester Road and Broad Street want Swindon Council to turn a blind eye to worshippers who park in residents' spaces.
In the past, there was an unwritten rule that wardens largely ignored illegally parked cars during their sermons.
But in recent months, traffic wardens have been ticketing without restraint.
