Five lorry trailers parked inconsiderately in Grays have been moved on as Thurrock Council continues its crackdown on nuisance parking.
The trailers were reported in Marshfoot Road and Wood View, prompting the council's Environmental Enforcement team to issue community protection warnings to the owners.
The trailers were promptly moved but details of the owners and vehicles have been taken in the event of any further nuisance parking, which could result in community protection notices being issued and possible fines.
Cllr Shane Hebb, Deputy Leader of Thurrock Council, said: "As we have already demonstrated in tackling inconsiderate and dangerous parking elsewhere in Thurrock, we will take whatever action necessary to move nuisance vehicles on and protect our borough and its residents.
"These trailers were parked in lay-bys, preventing them from being used and blighting the area.
"In December we also agreed to invest £1million on a new Kerb It initiative to protect Thurrock's grass verges and footways from nuisance parking, and that work is progressing well."
