An incident at a block of flats in Greenwich this afternoon saw the Fire Brigade hampered as they tried to access the area.
Around six fire engines were called to the scene and prevented from turning in places by poor parking. Cars appeared to be parked on a roundabout and at a turning circle.
This is at least the second time this has happened in the area. Social media frequently sees complaints about continual illegal and dangerous parking and a lack of response. This is about complaint number 20 from this account who state contacting the authority sees little to no action.
Hi David there are three cars illegally parked this morning on the pavement on West Parkside. Please can you report this so the appropriate fines are issued? pic.twitter.com/lhXNsU7Lwz

No injuries are reported but it’s a matter of time until delayed response times have serious consequences.
