Parking dispute blind man arrest


A blind man who claimed police were not doing enough about motorists parking illegally on pavements is angry that he was arrested when he decided to take action.

Daniel Duckfield, from Narbeth, Pembrokeshire, said he had repeatedly complained to officers over cars blocking his path when he went out of his house, forcing him and his guide dog to walk on a main road.

But he himself was arrested, put in a police cell and cautioned by police after threatening to let down the tyres of three cars parked illegally.

Dyfed-Powys Police said it was investigating Mr Duckfield's complaints about his arrest and detention.
