ACCESS to part of the Forum Car Park in Cirencester was blocked earlier today after a car was mistakenly parked in the middle of the road.

Motorists struggled to get out of the car park due to the 4x4 being parked in a space that was no longer in use.

The Forum Car Park recently underwent refurbishments with new parking bays being printed on the ground.

Despite this, the lines of the old spaces are still clearly visible and causing problems for drivers.

Although the owner of the 4x4 had paid to park in the car park, a CDC traffic warden issued the vehicle with a ticket.
