Ambulances need wings

SIR - I am bewildered by the lack of competence of the Welwyn Hatfield Highways department by the way that they have dealt with the kerb parking on Ascots Lane.
A few cars each day used to park on the kerb on the opposite side of the lane from the cricket pitch; because of this they thought it sensible to erect yet another roadside fence, but did not appear to have the common sense to anticipate the problems that this would cause.
They could have (or probably should have) accompanied this fence with double yellow lines to stop parking, however they didn't.
It is well known (for the time being anyway) that the ambulance station is located on this lane, but unless they can sprout wings, they have very little chance of reaching the main routes in an emergency without difficulty.
