These are the shocking scenes outside a country park after repeated orders to stay away in the middle of a series of locking fires.
Despite urgent warnings from firefighters not to visit Cannock Chase and other places of beauty, motorists were seen lined up on the streets on the holiday Saturday, May 9.
The car parks were closed to discourage visitors from going to the park after a series of arson attacks.
But as the sun was shining and temperatures were rising to 21 ° C this afternoon, the drivers were photographed using lawns to park their cars for their visit.
There were so many vehicles, paramedic Rob Marsh even compared the sight to a KFC Driving Service Queue as he took to Twitter to snap park enthusiasts.
Since reopening across Birmingham, diners have gathered in fried chicken restaurants to get their hands on fast food, with chaos at the Tamworth branch.
The emergency worker said the British lock had “epic failed” to Cannock Chase as he imagined the sight during his travels.
He shared the photo above and said, “Lockdown UK has epic Cannockchase again. You almost think there was a KFC stint on the field …”
Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service previously urged residents to “stay away” from country parks – including Cannock Chase and cockroaches.
The warning came after firefighters dealt with more than 150 deliberate fires, 19 of which were started in the Cannock Chase district.
The service said, “These deliberate incidents result in the removal of firefighters from what could potentially be real life-threatening emergencies.”
“Although the number of fires during this period is comparable to that of previous years, it is much more serious during an foreclosure.
“The message is that people stay at home or exercise locally two meters apart.
“While most people stay away, no one, except those living in the immediate area, should go to these areas, as it is essential that we follow all government directives and remain safe . “
The service urged anyone with information about suspected deliberate fires to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
If you see a fire or anyone starts a fire, please call 999 immediately.
