The pair behind a satirical Facebook page which shines a spotlight on Cheshire’s worst parkers have revealed they have been threatened by snapped and shamed motorists.
Step-brothers Ryan and Neil Jones insist Parking like a T*** in Cheshire is meant in jest but unfortunately some people have failed to see the funny side.
Hundreds of photos of poor parking attempts have been submitted to the popular page – which now has more than 11,000 likes – by members of the public since it was set up in December last year.
But the abuse by some culprits has forced Ryan and Neil to issue a polite warning to page visitors.
They wrote: “Any threats made to me or people on this page will be banned.
“It’s meant to be a page so everyone can have a laugh and joke. Not for taking arguments too far. I shouldn't have to look in my messages in the morning and see threats.”
One threatening comment read ‘I’d love to know who runs this page, I’ll smash his head in’, while another said ‘don’t worry, I’ll catch you in the act one day, and we will see who runs then’.
Fans leap to their defence
Messages of support have flooded in for the duo, with many fans urging them not to stop posting.
Steve Clark said: “The only people who make threats on here are cowards. You provide an amusing and socially relevant page and you shouldn’t be subject to abuse.”
While Amanda Bell commented: “This page is fab and always makes me laugh when I see the posts.”
Although one woman admitted she is ‘extra cautious’ when parking for fear a photo of her efforts will end up on the page.
