A gang of beggars have been caught paying for parking and leaving a car for the day as they went on the scrounge around Cambridge.
They were pictured getting out of the Romania registered VW Passat car on Saturday morning before heading to the city’s shopping arcades.
They were then seen splitting up to beg for money in different parts of the city centre.
Locals are so fed up with them that some have questioned whether one of the group who walks with a crutch is actually disabled.
According to a witness they left their SatNav on its cradle and they paid for parking from 9am until 6pm – the maximum time allowed.
When one of them was approached he said he was Italian and he said ‘I do not speak English’, according to MailOnline.
Lisa Jay from the British Red Cross said: ‘I have seen the man with the stick try his luck with myself and others as they walk into the bank. I have previously told him as I walked into the supermarket “I have no change”.
