Three mums arrested outside primary school following parking row ‘scuffle’

The Mirror is reporting that three mums doing the school run have been arrested on suspicion of affray after an alleged “scuffle” broke out over an argument about parking.

The alleged incident began when one mum pulled her car onto a kerb near a primary school this morning at 9am.

Another mum then reportedly banged on her window to alert her to the children walking nearby.

She pulled off in a panic, eyewitnesses claim, before getting out her vehicle.

The women then hurled abuse at one another mum before one squared up to another and allegedly punched her outside Perry Wood Primary and Nursery school in Worcester.

Police arrested two women in their 30s and one in their 40s on suspicion of affray.

An eye witness, who asked not to be named, claimed:….

“They started swearing and then one of the other ladies came towards her and one punched another one.”…

Another neighbour said: “I didn’t see it but they said it was a mothers’ scuffle.

“We’ve had problems here before…

“The school have notified the parents before and asked them to be courteous but they don’t take much notice…”

Perry Wood Primary and Nursery School, which caters for 600 pupils aged 3 to 11, declined to comment.

    Wonder what parking is like around the school? If there are car parks nearby, all parents should be redirected to them and walk the children to school. Maybe a walking bus is an option for those living within a couple of miles of the school and not working. Cars shouldn’t be on pavements anyway, never mind around a school with children on the pavements going to school!
