A DAD says a vile note was left on his van as tension heat up in an ongoing parking row.
The father, who has not been identified, said he has much right to park there as anyone else but had received both written and verbal abuse.
He said that in his area of Bury, Greater Manchester, an increased number of cars had led to a fierce competition for car parking places.
The van driver decided to speak out after finding a note on his vehicle which called him an “inconsiderate w****r” and menacingly added “move or else there will be trouble”.
He said he never blocks driveways when he parks and understood people’s “frustrations” but added he had “as much right to park on the street as anybody else”.
The note said: |You really are an inconsiderate w***er aren't you. Move your van or else there will be trouble. Want to be a clever c**t and play games. Then games you will get."

He told the Manchester Evening News that the note had “concerned” him, saying: "I'm also concerned about my van. Without my van I can't work, and if they end up damaging it… just like everyone else at the minute with the cost of living, I can't really afford to miss a couple of days work without my van."
The man, who has lived in Bury all his life, said it was "a shame" things tensions have boiled over as the area is 'a really nice place to live'.
"I get on with most people here," he said. "I don't want any trouble. It's frustrating because if I was parking directly outside somebody's house or blocking the light into their lounge or anything like that, I wouldn't do it.
"I'd understand if that was the case, because I wouldn't like that myself.

"The only place I ever park outside a property, I've spoken to the resident who lives there and they're fine with it
"It's difficult, particularly for those living on main roads, So it does spill out to the side streets.
"I understand the frustration. If I'm causing anyone an issue, they're more than welcome to knock on my door and ask me to move. It just seems unnecessary."
