Not the largest lorry to be driven into the city centre but I can't help thinking that vehicles of this size and larger (and some that are a bit smaller too) shouldn't be allowed in. This one stopped here for sometime.

[Image taken 5.2.21] York, the car parks around Monks Cross Park & Ride offer space to scoot while schools and everywhere except essential shops are closed during the lockdown of early 2021. The surface is smooth tarmac and well drained. In ... [more]
