Major routes in Chatham became dangerous to drive on due to snowfall.

In one road, the sheer weight of the snow caused more than 100 trees to be felled.

The road remains shut today while tree surgeons clear the debris.

Parking wardens have been reportedly targeting cars just 1.8 miles from Walderslade Wood Road.

Kent County Council has told drivers with abandoned cars in that stretch to avoid the area due to the ever present danger of more trees falling.

Mr Negus said: ‘Medway Council hold your heads in shame.

‘I have just witnessed a traffic warden on Castle Road ticketing abandoned cars due to the heavy and dangerous conditions when clearly if you had the gritters out early enough they may have got home.’

Medway Council has not responded to this claim, but it did today say it was aware of abandoned vehichles.

A post on its own Facebook page said: ‘We’re aware that a number of motorists abandoned their vehicles last night due to the severe weather conditions.

‘Our parking enforcement officers are mindful of this and will not be issuing fixed penalty notices to vehicles which have been obviously abandoned, such as where double yellow lines cannot be seen.’

Medway Council has been approached for comment.
