People living in Earls Barton have had to return from work and move their cars today because of construction vehicles blocking the roads.

Angela Draper, of Station Road, said: “It’s been mayhem. People have been forced ttake other routes on private roads as there’s no room.

“One resident has already had a wing mirror broken off their parked van, even though it was folded in.

“We knew this would happen when the development plans went through and this dispute will only continue.”

Residents have reported at least two large lorries blocking the roads as well as problems caused by other vehicles coming and going.

A spokesperson for Redrow, the building company responsible for the residential development behind Compton Way said: “We’re looking forward to building new homes in Earls Barton and have appointed local groundworks contractor T&W who are now preparing the site. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by initial deliveries to the development and will aim to keep any disruption to a minimum.”
