Motorists parking and dropping off outside a Sheffield primary school have been warned that they are putting children's lives at risk.

South Yorkshire Police said reports have been received about motorists parking outside Westways Primary School, Mona Avenue, Crookes.

A Police Community Support Officer visited the school this week to speak to offending drivers caught on the zig zags and double yellow lines.

Traffic wardens are now planning visits.

Inspector Colette Fitzgibbons said: "People are pulling up on zig zag lines to drop off and parking on double yellow lines.

"We did a visit yesterday and advised drivers. Parking services will also be prioritising the school.

"A letter will also be sent to parents.

"When you are dropping your children off at any school, it may seem easy to pull up and drop off on zig zags or yellow lines, but you could be endangering a child's life so think again."
