A BADLY parked car was removed by police because it was obstructing a street.

Officers moved the red 4x4 on to the back of a trailer and took it away.

A Brighton and Hove Police spokesman said: “A car was recovered due to the fact it was obstructing a close in Brighton. Please think about your neighbours when parking.”

This follows a badly parked car blocking a bus route in Bevendean for almost an hour last week.

Brighton and Hove Buses warned customers to expect delays because of the car, which was finally moved 50 minutes after problems began.
