Temporary disabled bays have been installed on Massie Street car park as part of the work to demolish Warwick Mall, which looks set to become a new Sainsbury’s. Unfortunately, one of the Council’s traffic wardens incorrectly handed out six tickets to people parked in the disabled bays before they had been properly marked out. The […]
