I was stopped in a queue of traffic this afternoon when I saw a police officer taking photos. She then approached my car and said "the ticket's in the mail, you're double parked". The only way for me not to be stopped there would be to have overtaken on the wrong side of the road. There are no double lines, so technically this is an option. Do I have grounds to appeal?

Yes, as long as no-one was getting in or out of the car at the time.
