Parking ticket for Abramovich's car

Parking tickets have been issued to drivers of vehicles which carried Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich and Russian businessman Boris Berezovsky to the High Court, after civil enforcement officers found the cars waiting on single yellow lines in a central London side street.

Mr Abramovich's Mercedes people carrier and Mr Berezovsky's Maybach were spotted close to the High Court building.

The two vehicles were also photographed by the City of London parking wardens.

Under the current rules, drivers of vehicles caught waiting on a single yellow line in central London can be fined a minimum of £65. This might end up having an impact on theircar insurance premiums.

The law currently permits car users to only load and unload goods and pick up or drop people off on a single yellow line.
