Officers have urged parents at St Joseph's school, Langwith Junction, Shirebrook, not to park their cars in a way which could ‘cause an obstruction to other drivers’ or children trying to cross the road.

“We understand this is a very busy time of day but parking without consideration can cause an obstruction to other drivers and most importantly to the children who are crossing.

“Remember – the nearest you can park to a junction is 10 metres.

“If there are single, double or zig-zag lines you should all be keeping these areas clear at all times, even for dropping off/picking up children.”
