The shocking moment a furious shopper knocks down warden who gave him a ticket for parking in mother-and-baby space - 26th July 2011

This is the shocking moment a Jaguar driver, furious after being given a £60 fine, knocked down a parking warden.

Martin Takle has been jailed for six months after his moment of road rage, which was captured on the store's CCTV.

The incident occurred after Takle was fined for illegally using a parking space reserved for parents with small children.

Takle, 36, was angry when Asda car park attendant Jackie Smith gave him a £60 fixed penalty notice for using the bay without any children in his car.

He then reversed out of the space and veered sharply - catching her legs with his front wing and knocking her to the ground.

The incident was filmed on the store's CCTV cameras and Takle, from Hartcliffe, Bristol, later pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at Bristol Crown Court.

Judge Mark Horton was shown the footage, which showed him remonstrating with the attendant during the incident in January. Read More
