Contractors have been slapped on the wrist by a Barclays Bank manager after continually parking on newly laid flagstones in South Ealing.

There was anger last month when sign writers for the bank used the refurbished pavements and security vans were doing the same thing.

Ealing Today forum member Jeremy Olive sent these photos and said:

'' My heart sank today when I found a G4S security truck (LT57 GFV) parked up on the pavement outside Barclay’s Bank in South Ealing. Especially following the article on Ealing Today which detailed a similar event with some signwriters.

''Barclays Bank in South Ealing clearly does not like either our nice new pavements or Boris Johnson (who I understand paid for them) or perhaps both. Or perhaps it simply is another bank that does not care about the local community.''

Local Councillor, Phil Taylor, took up the campaign and wrote to Barclays telling them:

'' Pavements are for people and not for vehicles. It is an offence to park on any part of the pavement.''

He has just received a reply from the Barclays Area Director, Nigel Taylor:

'' Firstly, please accept my sincere apologies for not addressing the issue immediately.

''I fully understand your concerns and have taken appropriate action to ensure the pavement outside the branch is not used for parking

''Our Suppliers have been contacted and expressly advised they are not permitted to park on the pavement and have ensured us they will notify their drivers. 

''Additionally, our branch staff will ensure that suppliers and contractors are not parking their vehicles on the pavement, and are directed to appropriate parking areas.''
