Columnist and food critic Giles Coren has considered moving from his Kentish Town home because Camden Council has towed his cars away so often.
Mr Coren, a columnist for The Times, recently poured his heart out to Heathman about his troubles with the council, estimating they have towed and impounded his cars no fewer than 10 times.
The 44-year-old, who owns an ageing Ford Fiesta and a more luxurious BMW, was most recently forced to pay £240 to have his motor released from the Regis Road car pound in Kentish Town after unwittingly parking outside his home during a parking suspension for the pollarding of a tree.
He claims that despite the day-long suspension, no work was carried out on the tree.
He said: “They tow and tow and tow but then they don’t do the tree work. I’ve been thinking about buying a house near the car pound because it happens so often.
