When responding to a 999 call, every second that the emergency services are delayed could have serious, life-threatening consequences.

A spokesman for Clitheroe Fire tweeted: "Please think about where you park your cars. This car had parked on the road leading to our station. If we had been called out, this could have delayed our firefighters getting into the station, then delaying our fire engines from responding."
