NUISANCE drivers and their "predatory" parking have left a community unable to access their own beach, it has been claimed.
Residents near Porthcurno beach, west Cornwall, are at their wit's end with the selfish driving habits that have seen some motors dumped in the middle of the road.
The situation – which has raged for years – is now so out of hand that residents argue lives could be at put risk after a coastguard was reportedly unable to get past the parked cars.
Twitter feed Porthcurno Today, which regularly comments on the carnage next to the popular tourist spot, shared pictures of the wall of cars.
They slammed: “Predatory Parkers at #Porthcurno today, just before HM Coastguard vehicle went down the road with sirens on.
“Will @ Cornwallcouncil paint the promised yellow lines over the top of these obstructions?”

The pictures from Saturday show cars scattered all over the sides of the road leaving next to no space for vehicles to get through.
Other motorists can be seen lodged in a bottleneck traveling in both directions, unable to move.
While one motorist appears to have little care for how they parked as their car juts fully out into the road, cutting off what should be two lanes of traffic.
Residents say the carnage at Porthcurno is nothing new but are demanding an end to the auto hell, which is getting worse by the year, CornwallLive reports.

The problems have reportedly been sparked as a result of the beach – one of the most popular in the west country – having no large car park.
Last year a group started putting down cones to ward off drivers and keep the road clear for emergency services, following three deaths at the beach in 2020.
One resident at the time told CornwallLive that it took one coastguard vehicle 25 minutes to cover just a quarter of a mile thanks to the gridlocked roads.
