Kier driver parks in a cycle lane and does some shopping

The driver of this Kier Group roadsweeping lorry bearing London Borough of Waltham Forest markings reg. EU06 HJZ parked in the cycle lane (yellow line, no parking) outside 795 Forest Road E17 and went into the convenience store, evidently to buy a packet of cigarettes. Noon, yesterday. He’s parked not just in a cycle lane but where a much-admired piece of off-road cycle path re-enters the carriageway (roughly where the bus is in the last photograph here).

There are three of us now. Waltham Forest cycling bloggers. We are out there on bicycles. We have recording equipment. We are watching. We are always watching.
