She and her partner did not see a ticket machine.

Weeks later, a notice arrived to say she had parked illegally.

BBC editor Amanda appealed but Smart Parking Ltd, which manages the Newquay Golf Club car park, in Cornwall, rejected it.

She said her screaming baby was “purple in the face” when she stopped.

“We had no idea if she was having some kind of health incident.

“Turned out she was just very, very hungry,” she said.

Smart Parking said it operated in line with British Parking Association guidelines.

It said Amanda was offered discounts which were not accepted.
