An example of rubbish parking in Branscombe led to local residents deciding to make an example of the unknown motorist concerned.

Not only was their car parked on a clearly-marked Keep Clear area near the entrance to Parsons Lane – it was also blocking access to some homes for the council's recycling lorry.

Three of the weekly collections of recycling and food waste had already been missed, and the latest was due to take place on Tuesday (August 10).

The car had been there for two days and attempts to find out who owned it had proved fruitless.

So some of the villagers piled up their uncollected bags of recycling around the offending vehicle and posted photos on social media.

Eventually someone contacted the police about the vehicle, and the owner was traced through their insurance company. The car has now been removed.

But in the meantime, residents are still waiting to have their rubbish collected – and since this includes food waste, they say it's now becoming an environmental health issue.
