A young couple narrowly avoided a hefty parking fine after kind Samaritans saved them from a parking warden who was on the prowl.

Students Matthew and Katie went to visit family in Thornton-le-Dale in North Yorkshire at the weekend and drove to Pickering on Sunday, November 7, for a day out. 

But Matthew, a second year student at Southampton University, forgot to pay for a parking ticket and expected to receive a steep fine when he returned to his car.

Instead, he found a heartwarming note from a stranger on his windscreen that read: ‘Parking warden came so we bought you a ticket, saved you a fine.’

Attached to the piece of paper was a £2 parking ticket that was valid for an hour.

His mother told YorkshireLive: ‘Matt has only had the car back two weeks after someone crashed into the back of them in August and nearly wrote it off.

‘He kind of didn’t need a parking fine so we’re very grateful to the very kind person who did this.’

Matt and University of York student Katie, who are from rural South Lincolnshire, visit North Yorkshire regularly.

The pair were full of praise for the locals, saying they are ‘always so friendly, helpful and kind.’
