A WOMAN has been fined hundreds of pounds after she failed to display a valid parking permit outside her home.

Sian Goddard, of Hove Court, Lee-on-the-Solent, had parked her car at Hove Court Car Park, the court heard.

She failed to pay a charge ordered by Gosport Borough Council within 21 days after failing to display a valid parking permit at the car park.

The verdict was proven in her absence at Portsmouth Magistrates' Court.

Goddard was fined £220 and ordered to pay £70 compensation, £32 victim surcharge and £85 court costs.
