Scunthorpe Truck Stop has recently won two awards for its commitment to providing secure parking for hauliers and lorry drivers.

It has been honoured by the PSR Partner Award from Transported Asset Protection Association and the Park Mark Safer Parking Award from the British Parking Association, which is in collaboration with the Police.

David Elise, from the STS, said: “The Park Mark is a great assets to us. It lets drivers know we are serious about protecting them and their vehicles. To be the first truck park to receive this award in the north of England is a fantastic achievement.”

However, David is highly concerned about the knock on effect British Steel going in to administration. He adds: “This could hugely effect Scunthorpe Truck Stop. British Steel is literally over the road from us and many of the trucks we wash and that park here come directly off the steel works. These are worrying times ahead.”
