Ooh Err Missus!
Tis time for another Prats of The Week Award.
This week it goes to Milton Keynes Borough Council.
Ask Terrie Rose and her partner Lee Smythe. They were given a £8.60 per minute penalty charge, totalling £86, by the council.
For spending an extra 10 minutes, over and above the agreed allotted/booked time, saying goodbye to their deceased baby, Zane, at Crownhill Crematorium in Milton Keynes.
Milton Keynes borough council stated that the extra charge was levied automatically on families who did not book extra time for their service. However, it stated:
"However, when we learned that there were extenuating circumstances we, of course, refunded the extra charge."
Call me a cynic but do you think the charge would have been refunded if the media hadn't got involved?
Milton Keynes Borough Council, well deserving Prats of The Week!
