Complaints about early morning deliveries and parked vehicles outside a shop in Gedney Hill are to be taken up by the retailer involved.

Villagers living near McColl's store in Hillgate Road made their case to Gedney Hill Parish Council during a recent meeting at the Memorial Hall.

One resident said that as the shop has become "increasingly busier", more customers are choosing to "turn round" on their drive.

Another villager complained of getting a "5.30am wake-up call" when newspapers are delivered at the shop.

A McColl's spokesman said: "We understand that there have been concerns from residents regarding deliveries to our Gedney Hill store and are working towards implementing a schedule to ensure deliveries arrive after 9am, via the rear entrance in future.

"Our mission is to support local neighbourhoods and we pride ourselves on being an integral part of the communities we serve."

Coun Paul Redgate, chairman of Gedney Hill Parish Council, said: "We need to support our residents as far as we're able to but McColl's want to work with us, not against us."
