Police in Penryn are reminding the public they face a fine, or worse, if they fail to properly park their cars.

Police have recently received a number of complaints regarding inconsiderate parking in the town, particularly in St Thomas Street, Brook Place and Truro Hill.

PCSO Lewis Vague said the town’s increasing size meant the situation isn’t getting any better.

“Please consider when parking your vehicle that it is not parked causing a danger or an obstruction to other road users or members of the public,” he said.

“Such parking could result in a fixed penalty notice or the car being towed.”
