A recent Blue Badge fraud case investigated by Veritau has resulted in a successful prosecution.
In August 2019, a visitor from Middlesbrough was found to be misusing his relative’s badge in York city centre. The case was investigated by Veritau’s fraud team and prosecuted by City of York Council.
The case was heard at York Magistrates’ Court on 28 January 2020. He pleaded guilty and was ordered to pay a fine and costs totalling £700.
