Parking tickets issued to car-boot motorists in Aylsham

Rumours that enforcement officers were not able to ticket motorists parking illegally on a 60mph north Norfolk road have been contradicted.
Aylsham Town Council's most recent meeting heard that the Aylsham Bypass Clearway, introduced on the A140 in July, was not working because King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council staff contracted to enforce parking rules had not been trained to do so on a high-speed road.
But a King's Lynn council spokesman told this paper that the officers had all received training by the end of August.
The Clearway aims to stop visitors to a seasonal Saturday car boot sale parking on the verges of the busy A140 near its junction with Burgh Road.
The spokesman said during October, the last month of this year's car boot sales, enforcement officers had issued 12 penalty charge notices to motorists parking on the Clearway section of road, from its junction with the Norwich Road roundabout to 100m south of the Tuttington Road junction.
