A car has been seized and three blue badges confiscated in a clampdown on fraud in Queen’s Park.
Officers from Brent Safer Transport team and the council carried out a special operation in Salusbury Road following complaints about the badges being misused by drivers.
Blue Badges are a government scheme which provides parking concessions to disabled people to allow them to park closer to their destination.
Holders can use pay and display and resident-only bays for free and in some instances can park on single yellow lines for several hours.
However the badges should not be used unless the person who it was issued to is in the vehicle.

The seized car was taken for having no insurance and a licence breach, in addition to the fines three blue badges were also confiscated.
