Officers have been patrolling outside schools in Duston to warn drivers about parking too close to junctions.

A total of nine drivers were warned about the standard of their parking outside Duston Eldean Primary School today (Tuesday) by officers patrolling the area, while a further five motorists were given warnings outside St Luke’s Primary.

Officers said they were given warnings after parking on or opposite junctions around the schools.

In the last few days officers have been monitoring parking outside schools in the Duston area.

On Wednesday last week five drivers were given warnings at Hopping Hill Primary School and a further 14 drivers were warned about the standard of their parking outside Millway Primary School and Duston Eldean Primary School yesterday (Monday).

Parents are being advised that they should not stop or park opposite within ten metres of a junction, expect in an authorised parking space.
