'Poorly parked' cars blocked lorries from emptying bins in Mansfield
Bins in some areas of Mansfield were uncollected yesterday as ‘poorly parked’ cars and snowy weather conditions blocked access for lorries.
Mansfield District Council have asked residents whose blue bins were not emptied on February 8 to leave their bins out so crews can return ‘as soon as it’s safe’.
Abandoned vehicles that were ‘poorly parked’ according to the local authority caused disruption in the snow yesterday, making it difficult for lorries to access properties to empty bins.
More snow fell across the town overnight and in the early hours of this morning, with more of the white stuff set to come down throughout the day as Storm Darcy continues.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Nottinghamshire and large parts of northern England until tomorrow (February) with temperatures to drop to -4°C.
Temperatures will feel more like -6°C according to forecasters as cold air moves from Eastern Europe and Russia towards the UK.
