Tractor gets stuck after 50 drivers park on double yellow line at beauty spot

A tractor got stuck in the middle of the road after dozens of drivers parked on a double yellow line to visit a nearby beauty spot.

The chaotic scenes were captured on video showing an enormous row of cars parked at the side of the winding country road.

In an attempt to squeeze past, the farmer was pictured scrapping along the hedges while loaded with huge bales of hay.

Despite his efforts, he ended up getting stuck causing traffic mayhem and cutting off access to the nearby village of Llantysilio, reports North Wales Live.

Video captured from inside a passing car shows the endless line of vehicles along the narrow lane with people walking in the road near Horseshoe Falls in Llangollen, Wales, on Sunday.

Denbighshire County Council said it is “fully aware of the parking issues” and that civil enforcement officers had issued parking tickets to those parked on double yellow lines over the weekend.

The council also warned those planning to visit the site in future to follow the parking rules or risk “further Penalty Charge Notices.”

Despite the local authority’s assurances, residents have called for a clamp down on parking violations.

Locals on the Llan-Advocate Community Facebook page urged “action needs to be taken” and branded the council’s efforts “not good enough.”

The group claimed only 26 fines were issued, despite more than 50 vehicles appearing in the clip.

A council spokesperson said: “We are continuing to work with our partners to manage the increase in visitors at Horseshoe Falls.

“We are fully aware of the parking issues at the site and remind visitors that parking restrictions are important for both road safety and ensuring there is a fair turnover of parking spaces.

“Over the weekend civil enforcement officers issued parking tickets to motorists parked on double yellow lines.

“Those who plan to visit the site in the future and do not comply with parking restrictions risk receiving further Penalty Charge Notices.”

The council reminded visitors wanting to visit Horseshoe Falls on Saturday that they can also use the Dee Valley Picturesque Bus Service which runs from Llangollen Parade Street from 8.35am.

“Additional countryside rangers are being employed to cover this area in order to give advice to visitors arriving at the site,” the spokesperson continued.

“We also urge visitors to park responsibly in designated areas and to respect the countryside and the local community, this includes keeping dogs on a lead and to bring picnics rather than disposable barbecues.”
