The tour bus for US rock group Wheatus was slapped with a parking fine after their gig in Kent.
The band, famous for the hits Teenage Dirtbag and their cover of the Erasure song A Little Respect, performed at The Hole in the Roof, in Queen Street, Deal on Sunday.
But police were called after shoppers complained about the way their tour bus was parked in the St Ethelburga’s Co-op car park during the concert.
Residents claimed the way it was parked caused difficulties to shoppers trying to exit and enter the car park.
A spokesman for Wheatus said: “Our driver would never park somewhere hazardous or deliberately inconsiderate to the public.
“An accumulation of shoppers continued to park their vehicles in such a manner as to make it impossible for other vehicles to move.
"Our driver would never park somewhere hazardous or deliberately inconsiderate to the public" - Wheatus spokesman
“We do regret any inconvenience caused but we were parking in accordance with instructions we had been given and were bound by the law from moving.”
When the police were called to the scene, the coach driver was on a legally required nine-hour break and could not move the vehicle. The band claims The Hole in the Roof was responsible for obtaining council permission for coach parking.
Mark Hammill, owner of The Hole in the Roof, said the pub had sought advice from Dover District Council and was told there would be no parking restrictions on a Sunday at this location.
He said: “The Hole in the Roof would like to apologise for any disruption caused to local residents by the parking of the Wheatus tour bus on Sunday.
“Following advice received from Dover District Council, the band parked their vehicle in the Co-op car park.
"We understand the driver of the vehicle parked in such a way as it became difficult for some vehicles to enter and exit.
"Upon being advised of such by Kent Police, the driver re-positioned the vehicle slightly and the issue was resolved.”
Dover District Council confirmed the tour bus was issued with a penalty charge.
A council spokesman said: “We are aware that a coach was parked in the St Ethelburga’s car park on Sunday causing difficulties to members of the public and local businesses.
“We would stress that buses or coaches are not permitted in this car park. Any bus or coach parked in the car park would be doing so in breach of parking orders and would be issued with a penalty charge notice.
“If a driver/owner wishes to make an appeal against the serving of a penalty charge notice to their vehicle, details of how to do so are on the notice itself and on the council website.”
