There is justice after all. An unnamed Welsh policeman has been booked for parking illegally as he sat in a van trying to catch speeding motorists.

The constable from Gwent Police was on duty in Cwm, Ebbw Vale, when a member of his own force issued him with a £30 fine for parking on a single yellow line.

Assistant Chief Constable Bill Horne, of Gwent Police Force, said: "We can confirm that the driver of a Mid and South Wales Area Safety Camera Partnership vehicle was recently issued with a fixed penalty notice."

" But it is not our policy to comment on the detail of any matter that could be the subject of court action. "
