Firefighters at the station were called to a road traffic collision last night when one of the appliances was hampered by the vehicle.

Fortunately, other Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service vehicles were able to respond as normal and resolve the incident.

The station first took to Twitter to shame the unknown driver. 

They tweeted: ‘”Mindless parking award” goes to the owner of this silver Ford Focus currently blocking in one of Coshams frontline Emergency Fire Appliances.’  

Cosham Station Manager Steve Jenkins said: ‘A delayed response to an incident can make a huge difference in the safety of those that need our help.

‘This incident highlights the disregard some drivers have for the emergency services. 

‘We want to help members of the public understand that they can help us by ensuring they park their vehicle to allow sufficient space for an emergency vehicle to pass.’

The motorist dumped his 2016 Cayenne, believed to be worth £42,000, directly outside the West Midlands Fire Service station in Aston.

A photo shows he parked up inside the yellow cross hatchings – which instruct drivers not to park there.

One of the brigade response vehicles was blocked inside the Ettington Road hub because of the driver’s ‘poor judgement’ in this incident.
