Two people suffered minor injuries.

Earlier this year the road was put under the spotlight as part of the transport strategy for March when the county council agreed the issue needed addressing.

In January, county councillor Steve Count said the parking was “unsafe, undesirable and unacceptable” because the road became blocked when two large vehicles tried to pass and it sometimes left cars “trapped” on the railway line.

Cllr Count posted his views on community website Shape Your Place appealing for residents to come forward with ideas to solve the problem
