Breaking News ! A Snowdonia walker got an unexpected surprise after their caravan was towed away by police, leaving them without a bed for the night. The mobile home was one of seven vehicles towed away by traffic officers at the North Wales beauty spot on Saturday, resulting in fines well over £100. Officers warned visiting drivers they would get tough on inconsiderate parking in the national park after chaotic scenes two weeks ago, North Wales Live reports. Despite the warning, dozens of vehicles were seen parked along the A5 in the Ogwen Valley and the A4086 between Pen-y-Pass and the Pen-y-Gwryd hotel at the foot of Snowdon. Other vehicles that were towed away from the beauty spot include a Range Rover and a silver Audi which was left parked on the pavement. A North Wales Police spokesman said: "Despite our repeated warnings some have continued to park irresponsibly and dangerously on the A5 in the Ogwen area. "Officers were approached by concerned members of the public who were forced to walk in the road - some with young children. This is clearly unacceptable and dangerous.

The spokesman added patrols will continue and any inconsiderately parked vehicles will be removed. The Ogwen Valley has one pay-and-display car park and several laybys in which vehicles are allowed to park. There is also a pull-in area and one privately owned parking area. But the fine weather drew the crowds on Saturday and these spaces were full by mid-morning.

Vehicles have been seen parking on the pavements in the area for several years and there have been repeated calls for action. At Pen-y-Pass a park and ride operation has been introduced at weekends with buses from Nant Peris every 15 minutes from 8am until 6pm.
