'INCONSIDERATE parking' prevented waste collections in a Taunton street.

Somerset Waste Partnership vehicles attempted to carry out collections in Fowler Street today (Monday, September 9), but were unable to because of the way vehicles were parked in the road.

A spokesman said: "Inconsiderate parking prevented waste collections today Monday from a score or more of homes in Fowler Street in Taunton. Crews will try to return tomorrow Tuesday from 7am.

"If rubbish trucks or recycling lorries cannot get through, emergency vehicles may well struggle, too."
