    Already posted on twitter, but this guy, parked at the entrance to the "protected" bike lane on Leith Walk, Southbound.

    Blocking the entrance to the bike lane, completely blocking the pedestrian crossing, and on double red lines. Video this evening...

    So, as I understand it, parking a vehicle which has been declared SORN on a public road is not allowed, but parking it on private property is allowed.

    Does anyone know whether a vehicle which has been declared SORN and which is partially on a public road can be dealt with by the DVLA/police?

    My understanding is that, if SORNed, it mustn't be on a public road at all. So one wheel partly on the public road, while it might appear nit-picking to some, is technically an offence. All wheels off the public road but the front or rear projecting on to the public road: not 100% sure, but I believe you can be done for parking outside a marked space if the vehicle is only projecting outside it so I don't see why it shouldn't be the same for SORN.

    Dulwich Hamlet goalkeeper threatened with having car towed during game with Crystal Palace

    He parked it blocking an emergency exit. His excuse: because he was "running late and saw no spaces".

    Breaking news: footballer is not the sharpest tool in the box.

    @ejstubbs not even a particularly good goalie by the sounds of it.

    Better class of comments than the EEN:

    "
    Should have put his goalie gloves on it's windscreen wipers, turned them on and parked it in front of his goal. Might have saved more than he did!
    "

    Better class of football supporters as well?

    'Edwards turned to the crowd behind his goal and shouted "that's my car!", which only resulted in chants of "Preston move your car, Preston, Preston move your car".'

    Van belonging to NW Tiling NI3 NWT parked on the pavement outside Haymarket next to the bike racks this morning. Yes it is a big wide pavement that is because lots of people walk there. I took a photo.
