Traffic Wardens Suffer Continual Verbal Abuse 

The Hampshire Chronicle reports that traffic wardens are “terrified” following continued abuse from members of the public.

In an effort to tackle the problem the local PC has been in regular contact with the wardens and accompanying them on patrols.

A spokesman for Winchester City Council, who is responsible for parking enforcement, said: “Our parking department has always worked closely with the police and has good relations with them. If assistance were required due to an incident then we would hope for a swift response and support.”
