Police have warned that illegal parking at a North Wales beauty spot will see more cars removed after almost 40 vehicles were towed at the start of the Easter break.

North Wales Police said parking on double yellow lines or obstructing roads in Eryri National Park - also known as Snowdonia - " risks lives".

Police are urging drivers to make use of The Park and ride facilities available to help prevent further issues on the area's narrow roads.

On Saturday The Force said in a statement that drivers in breach of parking rules would have their vehicles removed " at their own expense".

It said: " Whilst we appreciate people are visiting Eryri National Park to enjoy The Weather and stunning scenery this Bank Holiday weekend, We Are urging motorists to be responsible and think about where they Park and to make full use of The Park and ride facilities that are available.

" The irresponsible and Dangerous Parking we witnessed in Pen y Pass and Llyn Ogwen yesterday (Good Friday ) not only risks lives, but also prevents emergency vehicle access.
