REMEMBRANCE Day commemorations set to take place on Sunday November 12 will affect parking throughout Saffron Walden town centre.

The Royal British Legion is holding its parade on the day and local dignitaries are expected to take part.

Saffron Walden police Sgt Ashley Seymour warned parking restrictions would be in force.

He said: "Although 'No Waiting' cones will only be placed out in Market Place, I would appeal to members of the public and residents of the roads used by the parade not to park their cars in these streets as it is likely to cause problems for the parade."

The streets to be used by the procession include London Road, the High Street, Church Street, Church Path, King Street, Market Place and Market Street.

Sgt Seymour added: "In particular should the security levels need to be heightened before the event it may be necessary to have all vehicles removed and if there are large numbers parked this would make matters very difficult and possibly have an adverse effect on the parade itself."

Residents likely to be affected by the day's happenings will receive a letter from police advising them of the situation.

Some road closures will mean that delays are likely, but diversions will be set up and delays should be kept to a minimum.

Sgt Seymour apologised for any inconvenience caused.
