I WAS fortunate enough to be involved with marshalling at the Pedal Power festival in Northwich on Sunday and would like to thank the organisers and volunteers for their hard work in making the event a huge success.

I am shocked at the rude and discourteous attitude from drivers who showed complete disregard for the temporary road closures.

Signs were clearly displayed on Leicester Street showing no left or right turn into Old Warrington Road but many drivers completely ignored them, putting the safety of cyclists (including children) in jeopardy.

I appreciate that there may have been a slight inconvenience for them because the recycling centre was closed for a couple of hours but that does not excuse their abusive attitude and illegal driving.
