As the worker drove in Sparkbrook in Birmingham, he took pictures of the strange scene, which saw supermarket trollies being used as parking place holders. Two trollies had been placed facing each other in the road outside homes, weighted down with slabs of concrete. 

Rocks had also been wedged behind the wheels to secure them into place.

The worker, from Hall Green, took a picture of the trollies in between two parked cars, Birmingham Live reported.

He said: “I was driving through Sparkbrook and I saw a parking space with concrete blocks inside trollies.

“There was concrete behind the wheels to stop them from rolling away. 

“They were reserving a decent amount of space to get a car in or a larger vehicle.

“It’s crazy, it’s unacceptable if that is the only space available. There are no road markings on the road.

“You can’t reserve a space for yourself.

“I have seen sofa cushions, cones, bins, bricks etc being used to reserve spaces but this takes it to another level.”

When attending a friend’s wedding, Mr Miah was looking for parking when he discovered the astonishing parking methods.

He said: “I went to move the bin, but realised the person who did this had drilled it to the ground with a bolt and hook.
