A police clampdown on illegal parking in Uckfield has resulted in a local man being summonsed to court and being fined.
Following the case, Inspector Tony Wakefield, warned drivers who flouted the double yellow line restrictions that they may save a “few minutes but it could cost you a lot more”.
Residents have made parking a priority issue for police with officers enforcing the restrictions, including checking on cars parked in the time-limited, on-street parking places in the High Street.
The move has led to a higher turnover of on-street parking spaces near shops.
