Car parks are closed but it doesn't mean you can leave your car anywhere.

That's the message from coastguards after they found a car blocking an emergency access route.

Swanage coastguards has pleaded with the public to show consideration and think twice before they park.

Not only did they find a car on double yellow lines, it also blocked gates.

A spokesman for Swanage Coastguard said: "It might be you that the emergency services are being called to and this would stop them.

It clearly says on the gate to keep clear. The area has a high fire risk and all accesses must be kept clear.

"This vehicle was reported as it obstructed the emergency services."
