FURIOUS locals complained of the roads near their homes had become perilous after motorists double parked on a key main road linked to a beauty spot at Dovestone Reservoir, Greenfield yesterday (Monday, May 25).

Lines of stationary cars were parked up both sides of the thronged main A635 Greenfield to Holmfirth Road with fears mounting of accidents threats from motorcyclists speeding at the scene.

Said one angry local: “Traffic is worse than ever before. It’s ludicrous. The parking has made it near impossible for travelling vehicles to pass easily. Gates accessing properties have been blocked.”
