Portsmouth City Council revealed that the car was fined as a joke.

“It was a light response from one of our civil law enforcement officers to the sight of the small car parked on double yellow lines, intended to bring a smile to the owner and passers-by, which seems to have was the case given the comments on Facebook. ” said a spokesperson.

“We hope the child gets their toy back very soon and will be happy to hear that there is no fine to pay, but we recommend keeping small cars off the roads and yellow lines.”
