    Unless there are details of an appeal process on the ticket, there is nothing you can do other than pay or not pay.
    What you have essentially is an invitation to pay, to avoid the hassle of a court case, where the penalty (if found guilty), could be much higher.

    You could write to the local authority disputing the FPN and ask to see the "evidence", but I don't believe they need to provide it at this stage.
