Details were released this week of a case where a local police officer in Vigo has been slapped with a 645 euro fine after repeatedly parking his private car in a disabled parking spot.

Local residents took photographs of the officer parking his silver Audi which they said had been used for at least three days.

The pictures were sent to the local council who then issued a 200 euro fine for each of the three occasions he parked there, plus a 45 euro fine for not correctly displaying an ITV sticker.

The officer is also facing disciplinary action which was initiated when the case was first brought to light in March.
