SOUTHEND Council tried to crack down on potential disabled parking badge fraud by contacting the relatives of holders who had died.
The council sent 29 letters to the relatives. Sixteen said they had already returned the badge or it had been destroyed.
A spokesman said: “A further seven badges were returned by post, leaving six letters without a response. These are being followed up.”
