Using Freedom of Information laws, we asked the authorities for the top ten ticketing hotspots in each area.

Northamptonshire County Council wardens are responsible for patrolling Corby, Daventry, East Northamptonshire, Northampton, South Northants and Wellingborough. And in Kettering, police officers are responsible for enforcing parking restrictions.

The most ticketed place in the whole county was Cliftonville in Northampton, which is next to Northampton General Hospital.

There were 2,033 tickets issued in 2015 - nearly six every day.

It means that hospital patients, staff and visitors are among those most likely to get tickets.

Please let us know in the comments below, or on our Facebook or Twitter pages, if you’ve been ticketed, where it was, and if you think it was fair.

Here are the total number of tickets issued in 2015 in each parking ticket hotspot in every borough in Northamptonshire.
