COMPLAINTS about inconsiderate parking outside a primary school have been passed to police.

Vehicles have been parking on double yellow lines outside Cockenzie Primary School, which is attended by more than 425 pupils.

Now the issue has been passed to police and East Lothian Council to see what can be done to tackle the problem outside the school on Osborne Terrace.

Constables Fiona Cunningham and Walker Nixon will be conducting high-visibility patrols in the area as a result of the concerns from parents.

Drivers will be reminded that the safety of children attending the school is “paramount”.

The officers have urged drivers in and around the school area to be “more considerate when parking and manoeuvring their vehicles”.

A spokeswoman for East Lothian Council said: “We’re highlighting the importance of parking responsibly and with consideration for others, including pedestrians and cyclists.

“In the current climate, when Covid-19 continues to pose a risk to health, it’s important that we give each other plenty of space and can move around communities across East Lothian, and to and from school, safely.”
