The driver of a car left on a pavement has been fined as police denounced the motorist’s “shocking parking”.

Traffic officers came across the Vauxhall Astra in St John’s Street, Bury St Edmunds during a shift on Tuesday, December 18 after complaints had been made about the car.

The Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team later took to Twitter to say they had issued the vehicle with a fixed penalty.

It is not the first time police in Bury St Edmunds have dealt with car parking problems in the area.

In November, 26 cars were fined after the Bury St Edmunds Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) had carried out a crackdown in St Andrew’s Street South and St Andrew’s Street North in Bury St Edmunds, as well as Bishops Road, Blomfield Street, Orchard Street, St John’s Street and Brentgovel Street.

Earlier that month vehicles in Barons Road, near to West Suffolk Hospital, were fined for parking on a grass verge.
