Police seized a vehicle near a school in a York village last night (Wednesday).
It followed complaints from people in Wheldrake.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “Concerned residents in Wheldrake reported a vehicle completely blocking a footpath, forcing pedestrians including school children and wheelchair users to pass by on the busy road.
“On this occasion, we had no option but to seize and remove the vehicle.
“Remember: It’s an offence to obstruct a pavement and the police have the authority to remove your vehicle if it’s causing an obstruction.
“We don’t like to do this but sometimes we have no choice as safety is our priority.
“Please drive and park safely, especially in the area around schools.”
