Porsche driver reported after blocking fire station for ‘wedding emergency'

Aston Fire Station staff said they reported the motorist to West Midlands Police.

A Porsche driver has been reported to police after blocking the entrance to a fire station for a “wedding emergency”.

Aston Fire Station staff asked motorists to be “considerate” after the driver also blocked an emergency response vehicle on Tuesday night.

Staff at the station in Birmingham tweeted a picture of the white car parked at the entrance – labelling it “Poor judgment”.

In a tweet, Aston Fire Station said: “We always ask that you please be considerate when parking your vehicle.

“However, not only has this vehicle parked right in front of the station, but it has also parked in front of an emergency response vehicle.

“West Midlands Police have been informed. #Shocking”

After the driver eventually moved his car, the fire station added: “The owner of the vehicle blocking our station and our BRV has finally moved it, claiming that it was a ‘wedding’ emergency.

“No matter the emergency, don’t block emergency service vehicles. Yours and others lives may depend on it.”
