Wheelchairs block parking spaces for disabled awareness

A council has blocked able-bodied parking spaces in Ascot High Street with wheelchairs to raise awareness of people without blue badges parking in disabled bays.

Windsor and Maidenhead councillor David Hilton, who took part in the exercise on Monday, said: "[It's meant] for [able-bodied drivers] to feel the frustration that disabled people do when they can't park in a bay that is set aside for them."

One passer-by said that he had seen people physically threaten one another in Ascot over illegally parking in a disabled bay.
