CONGRATULATIONS to the stores employing wardens to police their parking bays on the Leeds Road industrial estate. This is a good initiative and will hopefully lead to the perpetrators showing a little more respect for the genuine disabled among us.

I wasn’t aware that pregnancy was a disability; isn’t it a matter of personal choice, if not always careful planning? Unfortunately for the disabled, there is no choice and no planning, just the harsh reality of trying to find parking spots which selfish able-bodied motorists often occupy.

It is a pity that other retail units – such as Asda and the Salendine Shopping Centre – can’t employ similar means to eradicate the problems which are regularly observed there!
