There are few things motorists dread more than returning to their car to find a yellow sticker on their windscreen.

Today the Northants Telegraph can reveal where you’re most likely to get a parking ticket in each of the districts we cover.

We asked Northamptonshire County Council for the areas where they’ve given the most tickets in Corby, East Northants and Wellingborough this year under Freedom of Information laws.

We also asked Northants Police, which monitors parking in Kettering, for the ticket hotspots there.

The area in the north of the county which has seen the most tickets, for the year to November 13, was Midland Road in Wellingborough.

A total of 621 tickets have been issued to cars illegally parked there – almost two a day.
