Car park knife was wedged in tight

Drama now over, but photograph shows what the problem was.

THIS is the scene that confronted motorists in Lace Walk car park, Honiton, earlier today.

A vandal used a kitchen knife to wedge open metal ‘teeth’ at the entrance to the town centre’s biggest car park.

At least one vehicle suffered popped tyres as a result.

Members of the public directed traffic away from the ‘teeth’ until the knife was removed with the help of a hammer and screwdriver.
