A HORSE breeder is appealing for Kirklees Council to put parking restrictions in place to ease problems with access.
Karen Watson, 44, of Crosland Hill Road, Crosland Hill, is calling for yellow lines to stop motorists blocking the entrance to her home.
Miss Watson, whose family have been breeding horses for more than 40 years, said: "We live up a small lane off the main road but people will insist on parking at the bottom of the lane. When we ask them to move, all we get is abuse."
She said manoeuvring her 22ft by 9ft horsebox out of the 10ft wide entrance was difficult enough without having to negotiate parked cars.
She said: "Cars park directly at the bottom of the lane and when there are things going on at Crosland Hill Methodist Church you just can't get out.
"It is a real struggle and we have to swing to get out which is difficult when you're loaded with three or four horses.
"I have no objections to anybody parking but a bit of consideration goes a long way."
She claimed both Kirklees Council and the police had failed to help remedy the problem.
"The council says it is a police matter and the police say it is a council matter. We just can't win," she said.
"I don't see why we should stop doing our hobby just because people will not move their vehicles."
A Kirklees Council spokesman said: "We will be investigating this complaint."
