Video footage has emerged of Fenland firefighters being delayed due to badly parked cars.
Crews were trying to get to a shed fire in Peas Hill Road, March at around 8pm on Wednesday, May 27 when they were forced to slow down.
Pictures show a works van and car parked on either side of the narrow road, blocking the fire engine from getting to the large blaze.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Please think before you park your vehicle.
“Crews were called to a shed fire in March and were delayed by poorly parked vehicles.
