PCSO Andrew Grix, from the Doncaster Central neighbourhood team, said the patrols had been carried out due to previous concerns over vehicle owners stopping and parking up outside school where restrictions are in place for the safety of the children.

He said: "The situation has dramatically changed for the best, but still some drivers still think it's acceptable to park or drop off outside school. On that day four fixed penalty notices were issued at £80 each.

"Please park responsibly and keep our children safe."
