Police were on patrol in Tinsley when they came across the silver van parked in the middle of the pavement. 

The driver was delivering a bouncy castle at the time and decided to leave his van in the pavement whilst making his delivery. 

However, it meant two parents with puschairs were forced into the middle of the road.
