Police are advising motorists against illegal parking in the vicinity of Carrick schools.

Commenting on social media, a PSNI spokesperson said: “Parking will undoubtedly be an issue as many schools were not built for the amount of cars coming and going with pupils on board.

“So please, leave ample time for your journey, watch for young people around you and be courteous to other road users.

“Ensure you park legally and safely when dropping off and picking up the kids, and don’t block junctions, footpaths or driveways. It’s not a competition to see how close you can get your car to the building.”
