Public enemy No 1

At last, here was concrete proof - if it were needed - that all traffic wardens are the offspring of jackals. Caught by a video camera, a pack of wardens is shown moving a car physically onto a yellow line, where they can slap a ticket on its windscreen.

Just the ticket

They hunt in packs, plodding the capital's pavements from Richmond in the southwest to Walthamstow in the northeast, wearing peaked caps and waterproof blue or grey overalls - with luminous strips to keep motorists from mowing them down.
