A mother says she got a parking ticket as she breastfed her child in her car.

Talin Sellian, 28, got the ticket in New Steine, Kemp Town, Brighton, at about 10am on Monday.

She contacted The Argus to complain the parking warden who gave her the ticket had not stopped issuing it as she tried to speak to him.

She said she had had to pull in to feed her 11-month-old son, Tai.

She said: “If someone is in the car, they should be asking them to move on before printing a ticket."

A spokeswoman for Brighton and Hove City Council said in a statement: “The driver has the right of appeal if she thinks she has been unfairly ticketed.
