Motorists using the BP service station near Gatwick airport in West Sussex are fuming after being sent fines of £150 for parking on the forecourt for more than 20 minutes - especially as marketing for the Wild Bean Café encourages them to stop for a break.
A spokesman for BP said the parking restrictions had been imposed because motorists were using the site as an extended car park for the airport - but added that the time allocation was now under review.
