Drivers are being warned that face being fined if they continue to block access to other vehicles on an industrial estate in Wrexham.
The warning, issued by North Wales Police, comes as a result of a number of complaints in recent weeks regarding vehicles parking on junctions and causing obstruction when HGV’s are in the area surrounding HMP Berwyn on the industrial estate.
Concerns have been raised regarding drivers struggling to get out of junctions due to a restricted view of the roads to manoeuvre.

As a result of the complaints the local Safer Neighbourhood Team will be patrolling the area at key times and leaving leaflets on problem vehicles, warning them of the consequences of blocking the roads when parking.
Sergeant Katie Davies from the local policing team said: “There have been ongoing issues on the estate for a considerable time and we have been contacted by many concerned members of the public. The problem has also been raised at a recent council meeting.
“Drivers also need to consider whether an ambulance or fire engine could get past their vehicle, which could be a matter of life or death.
She added: “The leaflets are a reminder to motorists that they have a duty to park in a considerate manner and we will take action against those who ignore our warnings.”
