Haringey Council handed a parking ticket to a NHS doctor as he worked in hospital during the coronavirus crisis.
Dr Mehdi Veisi, medical director for Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust, was stung with the ticket despite his emergency NHS badge visible in his car.
He tweeted on Monday: “Thank you @haringeycouncil for giving me a ticket whilst I’m fighting #COVID?19.
“You could see my NHS emergency badge too. Nicely done. Instead of saving patients, now I need to appeal a ticket.
“Get your priorities right for NHS staff.”
