TWO drivers drove off as they were approached by a PCSO checking on illegal parking outside Bexton Primary School in Knutsford.

PCSO Chris Pountain carries out regular patrols at primary schools in the town in a bid to tackle the problem of illegal parking, including a patrol at Bexton Primary yesterday afternoon (Tuesday).

He said: "Unfortunately six drivers were parked illegally. Four drivers were given warnings and one of the posters that pupils have designed.

"Two drivers decided to drive off as I approached so will be contacted via post."

Drivers were handed leaflets by PCSO Pountain featuring road safety messages designed by the town's primary school pupils.
