‘People with sports cars need bigger spaces’

Shoppers are also fined £70 for misusing parent and child bays at Asda, in Yeovil.

One person said on Facebook: “People with sports cars and large vehicles obviously need bigger spaces, but I don’t see any.”

“Why do people with children have to park right by the entrance?,” she added.

Others responded and said the large bays for people with young children are vital.
