Hull Fair has arrived in the city and so have plenty of cars filled with thrill-seeking visitors – which has already caused some trouble when it comes to parking. Residents living in the surrounding streets have found it hard to park outside their own homes, as the influx of visitors to the city scramble for parking spaces.

However, residents say that cars have been parked on pavements and double yellow lines, while others have been blocked in their drives by parked vehicles. People left their vehicles on street corners and gardens One resident said: “I understand there's lots of people coming to the fair, but to block people in or abandon your car on double yellows is just inconsiderate. People live here.” Others who have come home exhausted after long shifts at work have had to face the burden of finding a spot nearby their home. “Parking is ridiculous. When you come home from an 11 hour shift and just drive round and round looking for a space. Another added: “It's really frustrating riding round trying to get a space down the street where you live. There's a car park just down the road.” Residents have found that the spots only begin to clear around 10pm when fair-goers head home. Drivers left their cars parked on double yellow lines down the streets near Walton Street A fourth resident commented: “It's the same every year, but this year is one of the worst. People ignore the signs and just dump their cars wherever they want. “I pay for a permit and can't even get close to my house.” The issues come despite there being several signs signalling directions to car parks around the fair – some of which are located down the crammed streets and cost just £5. “Saturday night has probably been the worst it has ever been so far over the 34 years of living in my house. “Not one had a permit, very annoying when I have to pay £22 a year for a permit because of the stadium,” another person said. Cars lined the paths which had double yellow lines running beside them There are also regular buses which form a park and ride service to transport people to Hull Fair. The park and ride sets off from Priory Park. Alternatively, people who want to avoid fines and live in the Hull and East Yorkshire area can use public bus services to travel to the fair.
