OPA326L 1256 estate in red

Please find a link to a twitter post I saw this morning. This car is parked up in Crystal Palace and has had a removal / destruction notice placed on it. Anyone know the owner?

On Facebook as well but don't see how they could put a ticket on that. It's taxed to 01/10/2020 so fully legal.

I could be wrong but I seem to remember these pictures appearing on Twitter a couple of years ago. The DVLA info seems to suggest the car has now been rescued.

There was a post on a FB group I follow tonight with photos of it being loaded onto a transporter and the caption 'another one saved from the crusher'

In the FB post the 'new owner' reports that he was able to contact the owner, agree a price and sort out the paperwork. Just in case anyone is in doubt of the legality of the removal.
