Sheffield is among the top ten worst cities in the country for parking on the pavement.

The city features at number six in a league table published by charity Guide Dogs which says badly parked cars are putting people with sight loss in danger.

The research revels 75 per cent of people in Sheffield would support a new law to tackle the problem of pavement parking.

More than half of the residents who took part in the pool said that they come across parked cars on the pavement often or always on the street where they live.

And 34 per cent said they experience the problem often or always in the city centre.

The charity is calling for dangerous pavement parking to be outlawed.

It has released the research ahead of the second reading of the Pavement Parking Bill in Parliament today.
