Dangerous parking outside Ryton Pools Country Park has been putting visitors at risk.

With the sun shining this weekend, people have been visiting local beauty spots around Warwickshire (Covid rules applying).

But with the car park filling up, many motorists parked on the nearby A445 between Bubbenhall and Ryton, blocking the footpaths - which forced people to step out in the busy 50mph limit road.

Police were are the scene and have reported a number of vehicles for obstruction offences.

A police spokesperson said: "A number of vehicles were left obstructing the footpath along a 50mph road, meaning pedestrians had to enter the road to get by (this included young children and persons with limited mobility).

"A number of persons will be reported for obstruction offences. Today's UV boost has encouraged many to venture outdoors. Enjoy the sunshine but don't put others safety at risk."
