People’s safety is being put at risk by ‘idiotic and selfish’ drivers in Rye.

A lack of parking enforcement in the town has seen cars regularly blocking pavements and obstructing access to emergency vehicles.

She commented: “It comes down to people driving vehicles in an idiotic and irresponsible way and being selfish.”
