Every day these and other vehicles park on the junctions. This road is very narrow and used constantly by large vehicles. They have to come up on the paths to get through. There is a car park right there so no need to park where they do. We need yellow lines. Today the road was blocked to lorries for two hours. I’ve asked people to move and been abused for my efforts.
