North Wales police tow away cars after inconsiderate parking in Gwynedd

Police have had to oversee the removal of a number of cars which had blocked roads in a beauty spot in North Wales.

North Wales Police has issued a statement explaining that, whilst they appreciate people are visiting Eryri National Park to “enjoy the weather and stunning scenery” over the Easter weekend, there was irresponsible and dangerous parking witnessed in Pen y Pass and Llyn Ogwen preventing emergency vehicle access.

Almost 40 vehicles parked dangerously on the narrow mountain routes were recovered on Good Friday alone, including 29 near Llyn Ogwen and nine in Pen y Pass.

Parking in other parts of Eryri National Park were monitored over the weekend, and the Police said they were working closely with colleagues at Gwynedd Council and the Eryri National Park to help reduce the risk to walkers, cyclists and other road users.
