Difficulty accessing the park
Llanelli Online received reports of the emergency services having difficulty entering the country park.
Our reporter also witnessed a silver car inside the park, which he said was parked up against an entry gate, blocking the entrance.
Neil Thomas, Senior Outdoor Recreation Manager, said: “Unfortunately we had to deal with an emergency incident at Pembrey Burrows yesterday evening and a large number of emergency vehicles were in attendance. As per our set procedures, all emergency services have access to gates across the Millennium Coastal Park, and specific access codes are shared between force control rooms and personnel on site for access to Pembrey Country Park. All emergency services that attended gained the necessary access, but we understand there was an issue with one ambulance crew who could not gain access due to an issue with gaining the code from their force control. This was resolved in a matter of minutes.
However we are concerned that one access point was blocked by cars parked on double yellow lines along the road leading to Fisherman’s car park which did prevent access for a period of time. It is vitally important, as was evident yesterday evening, that people do heed the parking restrictions in place around the park to allow emergency access in the event it is needed.”
