A town which for years has bamboozled motorists with its collection of roundabouts has a new peculiar piece of traffic management.
Contractors for Swindon Borough Council have painted double yellow lines down both sides of a road, even though it's too narrow for any car to drive down.
Richard Payne went to investigate:
Council workers have painted two sets of double yellow lines along an alley in Swindon, which is just four feet wide.
Swindon Borough Council says it was done by contractors working on its behalf to stop illegal parking in alleyways.
Locals say it's stupid and a waste of money.
