Drivers are urged not to ‘put lives at risk’ by parking on the beach road at Camber Sands, Sussex Brighton News

Visitors to BEACH have been criticized for “selfish parking” which blocked a sidewalk as crowds flocked to the coast.

Drivers heading to Sussex beaches are being warned to be careful after a long line of cars were pictured parked on the sidewalk near Camber Sands beach yesterday as the parking lot was full.

Rother District Council said sidewalk parking “puts people’s lives at risk” as it can block the road for emergency vehicles and force pedestrians to walk on the road.

The council said in a Facebook post: “Selfish parking puts people’s lives at risk.

“When visiting Camber, be careful with your parking lot as it negatively impacts the local community, can prevent emergency vehicles from passing, and force pedestrians to walk on the road.”

Hundreds of people took to the famous sandy beach yesterday as temperatures soared to 27 degrees in parts of the southeast.

Sussex Police said queues for Camber Sands and West Wittering beaches started early this morning and urged sun-seekers heading to those locations to rethink their plans.

A spokesperson said: “” We know many of you will be heading to the beach today.

“But good weather like this means very long lines for Camber Sands in East Sussex and West Wittering in West Sussex.

“Both beaches are incredibly popular year round, but on a day like today the lines started early this morning.

“If you are queuing for one of these beaches right now, or thinking about going later, please consider an alternative.

“Please note that the pre-booked parking lot at West Wittering is full for today.”
