I read with interest your article about parked cars hindering emergency service access.

There has been a similar problem in Cranford for quite some time, where what is essentially a semi-detached house has been extended to accommodate the ever-growing number of people who visit the building late into the evening, seven days a week.

And this is not only during Ramadan. The building is in Burnham Gardens, at its junction with the busy Bath Road.

Well over a year ago residents had to erect barriers to stop people parking in, and blocking access to, their service alley.

Access to the alley is still being blocked by cars. It is frequently impossible to park anywhere near your house.

Indeed, at the junction with Bath Road it is often downright dangerous.

I appreciate that people need a place to worship, but it should not be in a small, residential street.

I am astonished that local councillors have not seen fit to comment on this situation, and I hope the issue is raised at the next council meeting.
