Nick took specific issue with the council for fining drivers who had parked on single yellow lines in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, on a Sunday.

The DIY SOS star insisted the car parks were full because of the festive event and accused officials of “driving people away” from supporting local businesses as a result.

Alongside a photo of a car windscreen sporting a yellow ticket, Nick raged: “Congrats ⁦Cirencester⁩ & Gloucester cnclls You hold an Xmas fayre to get shoppers into town & when they do & car parks are full you ticket everyone parked on a single yellow on a Sunday whole rows of them!

“Hell of a way to support local businesses by driving people away.”

But Jeremy, who hosts the weekday Jeremy Vine Show and is often campaigning for safer roads, did not agree with Nick’s stance – and was quick to tell him his thoughts.

Hitting back, Jeremy replied: “Excellent work. Children on foot are the priority, not adults wedging large metal cages into places they don’t fit.”

Nick then wrote: “More city folk telling people in the countryside how to live.”

The pair, who are no strangers to a Twitter feud, quickly attracted the attention of others with their war of words.

While some supported Nick, others threw their backing behind Jeremy’s observation.

County Councillor Joe Harris, meanwhile, stood by the fine and tweeted: “No one is being penalised for visiting the town – parking is free in all Cirencester car parks on Sundays. This is a ticket for breaking an on-street parking regulations such as yellow lines, no return within 1 hour etc.”

But when one follower brought it back to the feud by asking, “Is this the only contribution Jeremy has?” Nick waded back in.

“He’s still mad at me for calling him out on misrepresenting a story about police – he hands out criticism daily but gets very nasty when he is criticised It’s kinda sad Gets all personal so has been waiting several years for me to mention a car related story,” he wrote.

Jeremy then posted a gif of a lady removing headphones with the caption: “I’m sorry honey, were you saying something?”

In March 2020, Nick and Jeremy became embroiled in another Twitter spat over the police – which Nick was referencing in their latest row.

It came after Jeremy made comments during a news segment on The Jeremy Vine Show about the policing of coronavirus restrictions.

He had told viewers that a former Supreme Court judge had likened Derbyshire Police’s decision to use drones to catch lockdown rule breakers as a “police state”.

But Nick later tweeted: “Sadly @theJeremyVine loves a police bashing story; nice guy but can’t help himself every time there’s an opportunity.”

Jeremy shot back: “We were doing the news, Nick — it’s our job. See below. The guy is a former Supreme Court Judge.”

He then called out Nick for a motoring offence he had committed the previous year.
