On Friday No Parking bollards were placed in the vicinity of the Church Street and Bridge Street junction. Notices were delivered to the nearby houses requesting no cars to be parked in this area in order that Open Reach may carry out vital work early Sunday morning.
Three large vans transporting a team of men, together with a contract vehicle carrying traffic lights arrived this morning in order to carry out maintenance on the Broad Band cable. Frustrated, a decision was made by the gentleman in charge to abort the mission due to the fact that the bollards had been ignored and there were too many cars parked in the area.
The gentleman pictured said that this was the fifth or sixth time that this has happened.
