Police are calling on drivers to think about other road users when they decide where to park.

The advice was issued after an incident close to Jordanstown Train Station.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Does this look like an appropriate way to park a vehicle when going to catch your train? ‘R’ driver or not, there’s no reason to leave your car completely blocking a footpath.

“This is in a residential street near to the Jordanstown Railway Halt. If like most of us drivers you don’t want a fixed penalty notice to drain some money from your bank, think about all road users pedestrians included when you park!”
