South Oxhey Tesco Express disabled bay regularly blocked by store's delivery cages, say angry residents
Empty delivery cages are routinely left blocking a disabled parking bay outside Tesco Express in South Oxhey, according to fed-up residents.
Mel Withero, 38 of Woodhall Lane, South Oxhey says she has repeatedly contacted the supermarket giant using microblogging site Twitter to report the problem and send pictures.
The patient safety worker at West Herts Hospital Trust says despite repeated claims from Tesco that the problems will be resolved, the trolleys keep returning and blocking the space.
"This has been going on for two months and has probably happened five times within that period," she added. "There are 12 regular spaces. Why can’t they use one of them if they need to store the cages somewhere?
"I have spoken to Tesco on Twitter several times and they have always got back to me and said they will address it, but the cages are always back within a couple of days.
"I grew up with a disabled grandfather and a number of times we went to shops but had to come home without anything because we couldn’t park."
Tesco said on Monday they would keep the disabled bay clear of cages until they have painted a new disabled bay in a new location but Ms Withero said the cages remained in place as recently as Wednesday morning.
