Vehicles can be impounded when they are causing an obstruction or are a potential risk to other road users.

Local authorities or the police can impound cars if they are illegally parked, such as on double yellow lines.

To recover an impounded vehicle, you'll normally have to provide documentation to demonstrate that you are the owner of the car.

Typically, motorbike and moped owners will have to pay a £150 removal charge and £10 per day storage

However, cars and light van owners usually have to pay £150 and £20 per day for storage.
