The car was found unoccupied on Handley Street in Burngreave by police, who jokingly gave it their ‘award for the worst parking of the day’ yesterday, Sunday, June 21.

Officers, who were responding to complaints about bad parking in the Spital Hill area, said the driver returned while they were issuing him a ticket and asked them to go easy on him as he claimed he’d ‘just been to buy some food’.

“This was just one of a number of badly parked vehicles that were issued tickets to try and send a clear message out to those who are abandoning their cars in the road!” they added.

“Which vehicle will win our next award?”

Earlier this year, people in Sheffield nominated their worst streets for parking, sharing some truly shocking examples.
