There are concerns for the welfare of the owner of a Range Rover found parked within the white lines of just two parking spaces in Rochdale Town Centre.

The black Range Rover was discovered by a traffic warden at 10.15am this morning parked suspiciously in the car park of Marks and Spencer’s on the Kingsway.

Traffic warden Keith Moonie told The Rochdale Herald: “It was a bit odd to see a Range Rover parked like that. You know all straight and in only two parking spaces.”

“They usually take up three spaces at least. Sometimes as many as seven.”

“It’s almost as if the driver of this Range Rover tried to park within the white lines of just those two parking spaces so that other people who needed to park could also use the car park.”

“It’s just not normal behaviour for the owner of a 4×4, I once saw one Audi Q7 use all 72 parking spaces at the Tesco at the same time. I thought nothing of it.”

“It’s quite scary, he’s not even parked it in the disabled spot. I hope he’s feeling okay. Who do you think I should call to check on him?”

Mental health services have been called.
