FIVE blue badge cheats from Enfield have been ordered to pay £1,450 by magistrates.

Mark Chapman, of Hedge Hill, Enfield, pleaded guilty to using his deceased father’s badge and altering the expiry date, while Fadime Aydemir, of Highview Gardens, Arnos Grove, pleaded guilty to using her mother-in-law’s badge while she was in Turkey.

Georgios Panagiotou, of Empire Parade, Edmonton, and Ali Saim, of Twekesbury Terrace, Bounds Green, both pleaded guilty to using their wife’s badge while she was not present.

Angeliki Charalambous, of Pasteur Gardens, Edmonton, pleaded guilty to using a badge in Cecil Road that belonged to a friend who died in 2007.

All five cheats were bought before magistrates as part of Enfield Council’s on-going clampdown on disabled parking fraud.

Councillor Terry Neville, cabinet member for the environment, said: “We have just started our clampdown on blue badge theft, so I am sure we will be seeing many more cheats bought to justice.

“I am afraid we are just tackling the tip of the iceberg, but I can assure residents we will continue to track down these cheats to protect parking places for genuine disabled drivers in Enfield.”
