Are these the worst examples of bad parking in Leeds?One witness said that around 10 buses were stuck behind the car, which is likely to be towed away for causing an obstruction.

First Bus also Tweeted that their services were delayed due to the car just after 2pm.

Last November, First buses were forced to avoid Tinshill and Cookridge completely after a number of selfishly parked cars blocked the number 6's route. Four buses became trapped along the road.
