The warning by Burnley and Padiham police follows numerous complaints of vehicles obstructing residents' driveways or parked dangerously outside schools in the town.

Police are set to visit local schools as part of the Neighbourhood Policing Week of Action.

Badly parked cars mean people cannot access the driveways and the emergency services could struggle to access homes.
