RESIDENTS across West Dunbartonshire are being warned double parking is preventing gritters from treating some roads in the region.

Gritting teams are working day and night to treat priority routes and are now treating secondary routes as temperatures continue to plummet.

However, while out on routes the teams have encountered issues with double parking.

This issue has meant that machines struggle to make their way through these streets and cannot treat the roads.

West Dunbartonshire Council is appealing to residents to be considerate while parking.
