Double trouble... ...for line painters.
WHEN these drivers parked their cars, they weren't parked on double yellow lines.
And when they returned, they still weren't - but only just.
Because the determined council painter did the job at either end - and in between!
The unusual scene was spotted in Raby Road, Hartlepool.
A red Citroen and a black Vauxhall Corsa were parked nose-to-nose, with just a few feet between them. But that was space enough to fit some teensy weensy yellow lines.
A Hartlepool Council spokesperson said: "We are creating a new section of double yellow lines on Raby Road.
"Unfortunately, when our contractor carried out the work, there were a number of cars parked in the area.
"The contractor will be returning in the near future to complete the work."
These drivers will have had to read between the lines to work out what's happened... ian cooper
