Sent to Stevenage Borough Council 1 minute later

This car has been parked in a visitor's parking bay for two years, without moving. It has no tax or MOT and is becoming very rundown. Also is a hazard to pets and local wildlife as it has been leaking oil on the surrounding area. Lack of available parking spaces causes people to use the grass verges to park their cars.
