New parking restrictions at Sainsbury’s store in Ely are creating issues with Royal Mail workers nearby.
Traditionally postmen at Royal Mail delivery office in Cresswells Lane have been able to park in the Sainsbury’s car park.
But changes to the way the supermarket operates its car park is causing issues for some postal workers.
Sainsbury’s say they are aware of the issue.
"We are in contact with Royal Mail about how we could support their drivers with dedicated parking spaces,” said their spokesperson.
"Sainsbury’s offers free parking for up to three hours during opening times so that we can make sure spaces are available to our customers when they need them.
"There is also a 10-minute parking limit outside of store hours and this information is displayed in the car park.
