I have a special fondness for Swindon because of it is the setting for one of my all time favourite series of books, but I did think this was a little over the top:
Lines have been painted on both sides of the passageway, off Newhall Street in Swindon, leaving a gap of just 13in (33cm).
Nathalie Fisher, a local resident, said it was a “bit of a mystery” as “you couldn’t even fit a motorbike down it.”
Swindon Borough Council said the authority will be “taking it up” with their contractors.
Only I beg to differ with Ms Fisher. I think a motorbike could fit down the passageway, provided the driver wasn’t drunk. 😉
