A parking ban in the vicinity of Manchester United's training ground sparks anger among local dog walkers.

A parking ban in the vicinity of Manchester United's training ground has sparked anger among dog walkers.

Double yellow lines were marked out around the Carrington Moss facility following complaints from United players about parking congestion.

The club approached land owners Shell over the matter and the company agreed to impose the restriction, The Sun reports.

However, the move has been condemned by locals' claims that they can no longer park their vehicles near a popular dog-walking spot.

A United spokesman said: "Congestion on the road was making it difficult for people to get into the training ground, so we asked Shell to put the yellow lines down.

"People are not allowed to park on the yellow lines but they are only 100 yards long and they can park where the yellow lines aren't.

"It's just to stop congestion up to our barrier, it shouldn't stop people walking their dogs."

United opened their Trafford Training Centre training ground and Academy in the area in 2000.
