Police seize illegally parked vehicle after Highbridge traffic chaos

Police swooped on this illegally parked vehicle in Highbridge after it brought the town to a complete standstill on Sunday (February 22nd).

Incredibly, its owner had parked opposite the roadworks in Church Street, preventing larger vehicles from getting through the town, causing long queues of traffic to build up.

The Peugeot's owner was issued with two fixed penalty tickets before the vehicle was towed away.

Illegal parking in Church Street was one of the priorities identified by residents at last week's PACT meeting in the town. was first to report last month that the roadworks would cause a three month closure of the A38 until the end of April.
