That's what happens when you "outsource" local authority responsibilities with the targetry and financial gains for the private company. If he had been a council worker, it is likely he would have just told her not to do it.

A real ‘jobsworth’ at work here. Wonder if the private company he works for pay commission for each ticket that he issues to unsuspecting people?

What would;d he have done if the woman had walked away from him without speaking to him to give any details? Can he legally oblige her to do so?

Just another example of why we are becoming sick and tired of the stupid rules and regulations we are expected to abide by here.
