Can I be first to con­grat­u­late Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil on their suc­cess against lorry park­ing (At last! Clamp­ing threat is be­gin­ning to pay off, KE, Septem­ber 3). Last Satur­day: Si­mone Weil Av­enue, lay-by, two lor­ries parked, pic­tured above

Lor­ries es­corted from Sains­bury’s car park

A20 Hare and Hounds lay-by, 11 lor­ries parked A20 War­ren lay by, two lor­ries parked. Hen­wood In­dus­trial Es­tate, 17 lor­ries parked

Sev­ing­ton Busi­ness Park, five lor­ries parked

Gas Works Lane off Vic­to­ria Way, four lor­ries parked

Well done coun­cil, how would it have been with­out them. Andy Clark Ash­ford Once again a small semi ru­ral road is blighted by lorry park­ing.

Black­wall Road South in Willes­bor­ough Lees was badly af­fected by three huge for­eign lor­ries last week­end. Two were Pol­ish and one was from the Czech Re­pub­lic. My pho­to­graph shows that not only was ac­cess to the road re­stricted, but also res­i­dents of five houses could not park out­side their own homes. One lorry had a park­ing ticket but the other two did not ap­pear to be tick­eted. Why can’t the po­lice move these lor­ries on?

Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil must pass a by­law ban­ning lorry park­ing on residential streets. It is a dis­grace that peo­ple should have to put up with this. And this is in ad­di­tion to the prob­lems caused by hos­pi­tal em­ploy­ees park­ing all around the area. Peo­ple buy houses in residential roads, not for them to be hos­pi­tal or lorry ve­hi­cle parks. John Bai­ley Willes­bor­ough
