WHY would they do this?

Eastbourne Borough Council staff have been parking in disabled bays at Hampden Park.

This is in front of the cafe.

One onlooker said: “I have to use the disabled bay every day for access to the park. They shouldn’t be parking there.

Why is it allowed for council vans to park in disabled parking while they do their job? They have loads of space to park elsewhere.
“This company keeps parking in disabled bays.. But you don’t seem to get the council cars around much to check disabled bays to give tickets out”
