The Guardian wrote:Unwisely you ignored this second demand and the debt ended up in the hands of bailiffs. And thus an accidental sojourn in a bus lane can end up costing nearly £500 which you will, I’m afraid, have to pay if you want to avoid court summons and a wrecked credit rating.
The debtor paid the outstanding amount.

They are suggesting that you have no other option than to deal with the councils bailiffs, they also seem to be suggesting that the bailiff can haul you before a judge and destroy your credit rating.

The debtor seems to have paid the amount due to the council before enforcement action started, who cashed the cheques and then demanded more money before instructing their bailiffs.

Written by Anna Tims - an anagram of Man Stain which is exactly what that advice is.
It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority. - Benjamin Franklin

Its journalism. They like to sensationalise a story using chav-slang. That's why Tabloids are Chavloids. Journalism written in chav.
