STAGECOACH has had to stop servicing certain routes in the Lakes today due to a build up of parked cars blocking the roads.

The company has suspended the 77 and 77A services around Catbells due to ‘inconsiderate parking and heavy congestion’ as the tourist season began in earnest in the Lake District.

The company said that the route was blocked by cars making passing impossible.

Although it has not yet been stated when the route will be back, the company said Cumbria police have been informed.
