Fallout over AXA office parking gets dirty in Tunbridge Wells


Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells is, apparently, striking back. Employees from insurance giant AXA, which has opened an office in the Kent town, have angered residents by taking over too many parking spaces.

Staff at AXA PPP Healthcare HQ are finding their cars covered in dog excrement. An AXA spokesman said: "We are mindful of the importance of travel considerations … we have taken steps regarding parking near to the site."

One resident, Trevor Vaughan, 71, said: "People are taking the law into their own hands by doing nasty things. You can't blame them if they can't park outside their own house."
