The second sign saying its a £70 fine, is that acually legal? Surely only the courts can 'fine' someone.

You have said a blue badge was displayed.

Yes her badge was displayed but the expiry date was covered by the clock portion of the badge, the ticket said he was not displaying the badge correctly. He is saying that a blue badge was displayed, the signs say you must display a valid blue badge, but playing Devils advocate, how could the parking attendant know the badge was valid if the expiry date was covered?

My approach is to look at the wording used, not the wording as it might be.

Yep - when I saw the pics on the net. I read it that disable badge holders are exempt from the terms. In other words - read no further, this doesn't apply to you, move along etc.
My suggestions are not legal advice
