In 2015, a government report acknowledged that the lack of any procedure for appealing against a PIN "can feel very unfair to recipients".
"If somebody takes a dislike to you, they can make an allegation and you can be slapped with one of these notices," said Jordan.
"The notices last about a year, but I've since found out they can stay on your record for longer. The police are aware they are less than perfect."
