London: Victoria Beckham is apologetic after her chauffeur-driven black Jaguar was parked in a bay for the disabled outside a toy-shop in Harlow, Essex.

The wrong parking deprived seriously ill cystic fibrosis sufferer Chantelle Hughes of the parking spot in front of Toys R Us at lunchtime last Sunday, reports a website.

On Sunday night, a spokesman for Victoria told the Daily Mail: "This was a momentary lapse in judgement by Victoria`s driver, not something that Victoria was aware of or would ever condone. Victoria is of course, hugely apologetic for any inconvenience that may have been caused."

The fashion designer and her sister Louise Adams went to the shop to buy four ‘Bob the Builder` branded balloons on sticks, believed to be part of celebrations for her youngest son Cruz`s sixth birthday that day.

However, Victoria, who along with husband David is estimated to be worth 145 million pounds, and Adams were inside, Chantelle was driven up by her husband and unable to park in the space for the disabled.

She noticed Victoria`s car did not have a blue badge, indicating a disability. The lady then waited patiently for the driver to come back out so she could point out the error of her ways.

"Victoria Beckham needs to realise that disabled people could have parked there. She needs to think about it next time," said Chantelle.
