A disabled woman was left stranded in the cold after a selfish Porsche driver squeezed their convertible into half of her priority parking bay.

Wheelchair user Lyndis Greatrix, 49, had no space to open her door because the £75,000 German sports car was parked in the way.

She had driven her Ford C-max into one of the two priority bays at Pump Square in Boston town centre.

They are marked out with yellow lines giving extra room between each space to accommodate the access needs of the disabled drivers who use them.

But when Lyndis returned from her day out the white Porsche 911 model was wedged beside her vehicle - and did not appear to be displaying a blue disabled parking badge.

She had no way of getting into her car and was forced to ask a passerby for help.

She said: 'It was pretty obvious that the bay wasn't for parking and is needed to allow disabled drivers room to get their wheelchairs in and out their cars' She said: 'It was pretty obvious that the bay wasn't for parking and is needed to allow disabled drivers room to get their wheelchairs in and out their cars'

They climbed into the driver's seat from the passenger side and reversed the vehicle out so she could get in.

Lyndis, who has multiple sclerosis, said: 'The photo shows my car, The red C-max, correctly parked and another that was correctly parked in the two marked disabled bays.

'I've seen some outrageous parking over the years but this has beat them all.

'When I returned to my shock the white Porsche had squeezed itself between us on the yellow criss-cross, which is for wide disable access to the cars.' 

'It was pretty obvious that the bay wasn't for parking and is needed to allow disabled drivers room to get their wheelchairs in and out their cars but this appears to have been lost on the Porsche driver.

'I checked the Porsche and it didn't have blue badge. There was barely enough room to get out the car so I can only imagine the driver got out the car through the roof.

'I took the picture of the car to the police station but they told me they couldn't do anything because the car park was privately run.'

Motorists who illegally park in spaces marked 'disabled badge holders only' can face fines.

It is also a criminal offence to misuse a badge with penalties ranging up to £1,000.
