Have your say

DOUBLE parking blocked Westgate in Grantham on Wednesday, preventing an ambulance on emergency call-out from getting to its destination.

A Journal reader sent in this photo of the ambulance, with blue lights flashing, waiting for vehicles to be moved.

Traders in Westgate are waiting for traffic restrictions to be put in place following the recent redesign of the area.

They say that irresponsible drivers are leaving their cars all day in areas intended as loading bays, and are mounting the pavement to park in the street.
