The ticket was issued incorrectly and is unlawfull, this happened to me and I refused to pay it. Needless to say they cancelled it.

That's very interesting as the ticket I have been issued has wrong registration all be it by just one letter. Can I tell them I want to appeal it ?

Am I correct in assuming we are talking UK Laws ?
