A CASH crusader is launching a bank holiday battle against a car-clamping company.
Angry motorist Alan Fisher, of Stainland, will spend two days replacing tickets before they expire.
He is arming himself with a bagful of coins in his fight to stop the firm clamping vehicles in the car park at the tourist hotspot of Haworth.
The father-of-two will buy new tickets for any driver who is late back.
Mr Fisher, 34, of Stainland Road, turned into the crusader after he was 20 minutes late back to his Fiat Brava and found it clamped.
He had been enjoying a day out with wife Catherine and children Harry, three, and Katie, 11 months, when he realised his car park ticket was about to run out.
By the time the family arrived at the car park their Brava had been clamped and Mr Fisher had to pay a £40 release fee.
This weekend he will set up camp in the Rawdon Road car park.
"I'll ask people for details of their car when they buy their ticket and if they are late back I'll put another ticket on for them," he said.
"If they are grateful I have saved them £40 they can reimburse me something for the ticket."
The car park director, Ted Evans, said the clamping fee was cheaper than in many other car parks, adding: "People buy a ticket for two hours, not two hours and a minute."
He said if Mr Fisher interrupted his trade he would have him moved by the police.
Local MP Ann Cryer said Mr Fisher was a ``Good Samaritan".
