A town has been gridlocked for the second time in a week after a ‘selfish’ parking blunder prevented a bus from moving.

The 146 Border Bus was stopped early this afternoon, on Tuesday, December 17, by a van which parked over hatching on the road in Beccles.

Just five days ago, the town became gridlocked after a blue badge holder parked on double yellow lines.

Border Bus tweeted about the delays the 'selfish' parking caused, writing: "More selfish parking in Beccles. The hatchings are painted on the road for a reason!

"Apologies to anyone waiting in the rain and cold for a 146 bus that was running late."

Last Wednesday the town saw traffic chaos after another car parked on double yellow lines, jamming a lorry on a corner.
