It would be a very annoying prank for whoever owns this set of wheels.

The car was pictured on Twitter wrapped in tape and film in Bluewater Shopping Centre's car park.

Do you know who this car belongs to or why it was wrapped in tape?

This is a very insensitive prank if the driver of the car is genuinely disabled and unable to remove the wrapping. However, I suspect that the person who has done this knows that the driver is not disabled and did this to point out how rude it is to use disabled parking bays or a blue badge without a real reason.

Its a mother and baby bay, not a disabled one.

A bit far fetched I admit, but we used to do things like this to our mates cars all the time... wrap the whole thing in toilet paper when we spotted it in the car park and they knew exactly who done it and would do something else back (nothing damaging it of course) You never know, it might have been done for a laugh. Lighten up!

Parent and Child, and Diasbled bays have no legal meaning within private car parks and are marked out as a courtesy only. Most people observe them but at the end of the day they are for guidance only and can't be legally enforced.

Many parking companies who tried to charge people who parked in disabled bays failed in court. On street council parking is a completely different matter though.

IF you park in a disabled bay without a badge you WILL get a ticket so YES they do have legal meaning! there are wardens that walk around the car parks -ive seen them and seen them ticket people in as disabled bay who do not have the correct identification to park in them. However child/parents bays is harder to police.
If this was a prank it must have taken some time to commit and people must have seen them do it!!
