Sir,

There is an on going issue with disabled parking in Main Street.

On many occasions my father-in-law has been forced to park in side streets because the disabled bays are taken up by able bodies.

The breaking point was when a 76-year-old great grandfather fell and hurt himself because the bays were taken so able folk can get a roll and sausage.

People think they are disabled but they were had no badge on display and it was all to get two metres closer to the shop.

It has got that bad that my father has spent savings he had for his funeral to buy a mobility scooter.

I love the town and it is sad to see that due to budget cuts there is no enforcement.

Name and address supplied.
