High Street: another parked car on the loose - this time saved from a costly smash

If it's Thursday, there must be an empty, parked car about to quit its bay on the High Street and career down the slope towards the cars parked along the kerb.  

This time, however, quick thinking by Kat Holman of The Food Gallery Express and several shoppers, meant that yet another 'slider' was averted.

Kat Holman told Marlborough News Online:  "I looked outside and saw people running and someone shouted 'Help!'"

"A group of people ran to the car and started pushing it back up to the parking bay.  The car was close to rolling into another car."   

"They then held the car there and one guy went to get some big stones and put it behind the car to stop it rolling back. They then wrote a note for the persons whose car it was."

No one will say what the note said...

Perhaps cars parked in the middle of the High Street are peeved that those parked along the kerbs park for free
