Bizarre new story of the day: Graeme Ellis from Swanley, went on the Transport for London (TfL) website to pay the £8 fee and then requested a receipt. The first time, he was sent 500, and then on the next occasion 3,000 arrived at his house, delivered by Royal Mail. TfL said it was an “unacceptable” computer error and steps had been taken to ensure it did not happen again.
Mr Ellis said:
The second time it happened I ended up with four boxes, about 3,000 receipts all turned up on the doorstep in a big Royal Mail lorry. I think I might pay at the petrol station tomorrow. The kids love opening them though, we make castles out of them and towers.
