DRIVERS parking on zigzag lines outside Tesco Express in Westbourne have been targeted by police.

Officers dealt with several drivers following complaints from the public about parking outside the Poole road store.

Now Bournemouth Police have issued advice to those who "can’t be bothered to walk the extra 30 metres to the car park when just nipping in for some bits."

PC Joel Brooks said: "Although a lot of traffic enforcement causes divisive comments about revenue and targets, let me tell you why we do These lines are not just for pretty road decoration, they are to keep crossings clear and safe.

"It’s me and my colleagues that have to deal with traffic collisions, including the task of both trying to save lives and delivering sad news to family members."
