The Breckland Retail Park, in London Road, Thetford, cost £6.9m and was completed in June this year. Yet motorists are still getting caught out parking on junctions and crossings outside its B&M store.

Despite its modern architecture and newly surfaced roads, the car park markings do not seem to be clear enough to drivers.

Motorists appear to have mistaken the zebra crossing as the line of a parking space, while also blocking the road and entrance to the shopping trolley bay.

Thetford residents have reported that since the development has opened the issue has been happening regularly.

The park has five retail units, three of which have been taken on by B&M, Home Bargains, and Greggs, and has created 200 jobs.
