My mrs had a job interview and parked on the company's car park. The sign said that it was private parking, but she was told that this would be okay as long as once at reception she entered our registration num into a particular ipad. Prior to signing in the car, she was distracted by events relating to the interview and didn't get chance to sign in, then forgot she hadn't once the interview was over, and just drove off. Now we've received a PCN (from Civil Enforcement Ltd, a private parking company who doubtlessly won't be sympathetic). We rang the receptionist of the company she had an interview with, but she said we had to deal directly with Civil Enforcement Ltd. Any thoughts on our next move?

Thanks ostell. From what I can gather the barrier remains open throughout the working day. Certainly it was open when she arrived, so wasn't specifically raised for her. With this in mind, if the law is that a consumer is entitled to use the most advantageous sign (in this case 'For Centre Users only', which clearly she was) is it not enough to simply prove she was a centre user without any mention of the barrier being initially closed? And if so, is there a specific rule in law that she can quote? thanks in advance.
