Out with the mother in law to the high street she says the shop she wants is off to the left which is good as its no right turn at the end we turn left she then says its the other way I do a U turn about 5 yards from the turning and promptly receive a fixed penalty for £50 for turning right.Should I fight it or just pay up?

Did the road have a 'No U-Turns' sign? If it didn't, you've broken no law. Even if it did, they're charging you with turning right, which isn't what you did, so the charge should be thrown out.

Not sure if there are any legal definitions of how far left you have to go before you have 'not turned right', this may prove crucial - you'd better research that if you decide to fight.

Is it an endorseable offence? If not, it would probably be cheaper (though unjust) to just pay the fine, unless you're absolutely certain you can win and receive back any costs incurred.

Fight it! It is my guess the penalty will be dropped.

I am a bit confused by Boneseyboy's description.

Imagine a 'T' with B coming down the leg to the cross bar. No right turn when reaching the end and signed so. Turn left permitted which he does and then entering the leg to the left realises his mistake and does a U Turn on that road. This is not a right turn as the right leg has not been entered. No offence IMHO.

But why no right turn allowed? Could it be that the left turn road is a One Way Street and by U turning B is in contraflow? Or has he gone across the top bar into the right turn road in contravention of a No Entry.

Not sure which offence committed. A FPN will carry points for failing to conform to Traffic sign (if note on FPN that DL also required when payment made then FTC offence) or whether offence against a Traffic Order which may not carry points.
