THIS week, the ECHO launched our Operation Zigzag campaign - aimed at highlighting the issue of selfish and dangerous parking near schools, and we have been overwhelmed with the response.

The huge volume of correspondence, images and examples sent into us shows two things - what a big problem this is around our region, but also how many people care deeply about the issue.

As our campaign continues, we have selected some of the very worst examples of people parking outside schools and putting youngsters in danger.

We are grateful to everyone who has helped us to shed a light on the problem - and hope everyone's efforts will make some people thing again the next time they consider parking on zigzag lines outside a school.
