First Cut: The Yorkshire Clamper

Friday, September 4 on 4

First-time director Leon Dean meets Britain’s most notorious car clamper. Ted Evans is the thorn in the side of the beautiful Yorkshire village of Haworth, the home of the Bronte sisters. Residents spurn him and tourists fear him. He has been accused of immobilising a car while its driver was asleep, clamping a minibus for disabled children and clamping the Prime Minister of Australia. In 2003 his company, Carstoppers, won the RAC Dick Turpin Award for the nation’s worst clamper. And Ted’s car park ends up being debated in Westminster when he clamps former Parliament speaker Betty Boothroyd.
