The police action follows complaints that motorists were parking on double yellow lines, causing obstructions to other road users.

PC Lee Howell, from Magdalen SNT, said: “Officers will continue to patrol this area and target vehicles which are parked irresponsibly. However, I'm pleased to say the message appears to be getting across. There is suitable parking at the rear of the shops and illegal parking will not be tolerated.”
