Former Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley was left fuming by a traffic warden who allegedly branded her a cow for stopping to see to her injured son.
The actress took to Twitter to voice her disgust at her alleged treatment by the council worker, who she labelled a disgrace for their behaviour towards her when she stopped to tend to three-year-old son Alfies finger.
Recalling the experience on Twitter, she wrote: To the traffic warden that took a picture of my car because Id pulled over to sort my son out after hed hurt his finger… I hope you have the worst day. Youre attitude was a disgrace … who do I speak to please @ManCityCouncil ?? I do not appreciate being called a cow (sic).

The post was flooded with comments from fans sharing similar experiences, and in response to writer Peter Keeley, Catherine said she thought it may have been the same warden who shouted at her a few years ago.
Thankyou!!! Im in shock!! she wrote. Pretty sure The same guy shouted at me a few years back for pulling over to breast feed and I ended up crying in the back of my car. I dont understand how he still has a job . Vile.
The 35-year-old, who played Eva in the soap, responded to other fans saying shed been left gobsmacked by the exchange.
