TWO PCSOs were caught parking in a spot meant for disabled and elderly people in Wisbech on Tuesday.
They parked their van outside Wisbech Mobility, in Cattle Market Chase, Wisbech, while they had a wander around a nearby auction.
Fenland District Councillor Phil Hatton, who owns the building, says they did not have permission to park there so he confronted them on their return.
He said: “The police van parked on our private property without permission so that the two occupants, a man and woman PCSO, could have a wander around the local auction and view the items.
“They were there for a while. I would say for at least 15 minutes.

“This private parking is for disabled and elderly customers only, and when challenged on their return the driver especially was very sheepish.”
Chief Insp Mike Winters, Fenland area commander, said the PSCOs were on official duty at the auction.

He said: “I am sorry this has caused the business owner some anxiety and the officers should have spoken with him first.
“They were attending the auction to check for property stolen from burglaries. We are often able to return peoples stolen possessions and obtain evidence to convict burglars and those that handle stolen property by doing this.”
