A BUCKINGHAM dental nurse has spoken out over fears for her and her colleagues’ safety in the Cornwall’s Meadow long-stay car park.

Hayley Newton, aged 31, who works at Meadow Walk Dental Practice, said staff there are scared when returning to their cars at night.

Since Aylesbury Vale District Council introduced charges to the car park, long-stay car parking spaces have been restricted to the far end of the car park, close to the river footpath.

Mrs Newton said inadequate lighting and anti-social behaviour by youths make it intimidating for staff who have to cross the car park after dark, sometimes up to 7pm.
