I would like to commend the police for two acts of law enforcement witnessed by myself over the holiday period.
First a coach was stopped from going over the swing bridge and was escorted back to the marina coach park.
This coach was obviously over 7.5 tons so is not permitted over the bridge.
Secondly, a car driver was stopped from passing over the swing bridge from east to west then turning right along St Anne’s Staithe.
As the road signs indicate, and the road markings, this is not a legal move.
One day someone will get injured by this thoughtless and illegal manoeuvre.
