The 47-year-old star had filed a theft report of her 75,000 pound car when it apparently went missing during a shopping trip in Mayfair, reported Sun online.
But on Sunday, photographs emerged of the Audi parked up in the streets of the exclusive London district, with three parking tickets seen on the windscreen. Hurley's vehicle was seen parked next to a clearly displayed parking meter, which asks the driver to pay for their parking time via phone or text.
The sign also makes it clear that the vehicle should be left for no longer than four hours. Shop staff said how they remembered her parking the motor last week as they voiced their disbelief at the fiasco. One said, "It's been here every day, with tickets piling up.
How stupid or rich do you have to be to forget about your car for that long?" "She arrived at lunchtime and began walking one way down the road, then turned around and went the other.
She comes here quite a lot but looked a bit lost and disoriented. You can only park there for four hours but she never returned for it. We saw the car on Friday and had bets on whether it would still be there Monday morning," said another.
