WAR has been declared on "cowboy" clampers who are making life a misery for residents in Times Territory.

And MP Grant Shapps has threatened one firm with the full force of Parliament, after being continuously snubbed by its MD.

The Welwyn Hatfield politician has written numerous letters of complaint to clamping firm UK Parking Control supremo Rupert Williams.

But he has not had a reply to a single one - leaving Mr Shapps with no alternative but to take the matter to the House of Commons.

He told today's Welwyn and Hatfield Times: "I don't think it's right they can drive around with what are effectively money-making clamping devices, put them on people's cars and then not accept any correspondence.

"They cannot be allowed to act like cowboys who are a law unto themselves."
