  2. The Craziest Parking Ticket you got or heard of.

    Lorry driver Michael Collins was on his way to collect a skip in London's Belsize Park when the road beneath him collapsed.

    Justin Edinburgh

    Justin Edinburgh

    According to the beeb he is interested in the vacant Kettering Town post. Edinburgh is currently in charge of Rushden and Diamonds but they have been expelled from the conference and face a winding up order, so it is not surpising he is looking elsewhere.
