Police in Market Drayton have stepped up their patrols to check car parking spaces at the swimming pool's car park are not being misused.

Recently, several vehicles, believed to be owned by the same person, were seized by police from the car park in Newtown.

Constable Mick Sturland, of Market Drayton's safer neighbourhood team, tweeted: "Another valuable parking space taken up by an untaxed car at swimming baths. Now seized using @DVLAgovuk Police powers."

Shropshire Council is looking at introducing new signs at the car park to tackle the problem of a lack of available parking spaces. The signs would aim to prevent people from leaving their cars there longer than 24 hours.

It comes just weeks after motorists claimed they are being forced to abandon their cars on grass verges and pavements because of a lack of parking at the car park.
