Wiltshire Council has proved they *do* have a sense of humour as they cancel one parking fine in the city!

Jayne Parsons was unfortunate to be issued with a ticket while she was parked up outside her house in Butts Road on Sunday August 12th.

And while she accepted she was in the wrong for being on double yellows, she thought she'd have a go at appealing the penalty anyway.

Jayne wrote to Wiltshire Council's Parking Services with her excuse - in the form of a poem!

Here what she wrote:

Dear Sir, or to whom it may concern,
A parking fine I did earn.
I was parked outside my house on yellow lines,
Intending to move and dodge your fines.
But on Sunday I was loading my car
With food and cakes for a horse show; not far

Before these events, I get a nervous tum,
For the toilet I had to run.
And with not a moment to lose,
I made it indoors to release my poos!

I couldn't move until all was done,
But when I returned the fine was done.
I thought it better was be discreet
And leave the car parked in the street.
Next time I'll move and not be a pain,
But if I get caught short, I'll s*** in the drain.

Wiltshire Council wrote back, and had plenty of sympathy for Jayne - here's what they sent her:
