A councillor in York has asked LNER to remove machinery that is blocking two of the blue badge bays at the station.
Labour’s Katie Lomas complained that they were not available for people with mobility issues.
“They are the nearest to the entrance too. she added in a tweet to @LNER.
“Please leave these bays free to support access for those who need it!”
Her tweet produced a number of replies from people who were frustrated to see the bays out of use.
One said: “This has happened regularly in the past. Very irritating when you need to pick a disabled person at the station.”
LNER, the train operator which manages the station, said: “The vehicles were parked without our authorisation and we instructed the contractors to urgently remove them, which they have now done.
“The blue badge spaces are once again available for customers visiting the station.”
The subject of blue badge access in the city is a controversial one after changes to the footstreets effectively made the city centre a no-go area for people with mobility challenges and blue badges according to campaigners.
YorkMix is asking LNER for a comment and will report back.
