Action is being urged to tackle parking problems close to a North Walsham School.

Angry residents living near to St Nicholas House School on Yarmouth Road claim parents are regularly blocking driveways to their homes.

The complaints were discussed at a recent North Walsham Town Council meeting where it was agreed to raise the issue with the school and Norfolk County Council. Town clerk Nick Clancy said: 'Residents in Grange Mews have complained that their access to the highway has been blocked at times. There are no measures we can take, but can talk to the experts and ask them to have a look.' School governor/owner Shaun O'Hara said: 'We did have a complaint about cars blocking Grange Mews a considerable time ago which we felt had been managed. There are no parking restrictions on that part of the road and perhaps that needs to be looked at.'
