Gloucestershire Constabulary has posted a request to planespotters and visitors to Fairford, writes Chris Roberts.

A spokesman for the force said: “We appreciate, and understand, the desires to come to this area to observe the increased aircraft activity.

“We welcome you all and hope you are able to enjoy your visit.

“We do value your presence, as you are vigilant, and do report suspicious activity to us.

“We recognise the impact such activity has on the local area, and wish to encourage the safe and sociable use of our roads.

“We are working with other partner agencies to achieve that aim. To this end, we request that any vehicles parked are done so with the consideration of other road users, businesses, and the community.

“We especially implore you not to park in front of any crash gate, or on any verge. We reserve the right to remove any such vehicle, at the owner’s expense, for the offence of obstruction, and report any driver for driving otherwise than on a road. Parking on a pavement can be similarly dealt with.

“Parking on double yellow lines will be dealt with by enforcement officers from Glos County Council, who are conducting patrols in the area.”
