Parents and teachers are facing a chaotic school run tomorrow morning as a village car park is set to close.
East Farleigh's 72-space car park is closing indefinitely from 5pm tonight after parents reportedly fell over inside.
The Vicarage Lane car park is vital for teachers and parents heading to neighbouring East Farleigh Primary School.
The car park is owned and maintained by East Farleigh Parish Council.
Parish council clerk Sarah O'Callaghan said: "The reason for the closure is several parents have slipped over in there recently.
"As a precaution we decided it was best to close the car park and get an independent inspector.
"It will cause a huge problem, that's why we've given the primary school notice of the closure, the decision was made yesterday (Tuesday)."
East Farleigh Primary School is expected to inform parents this afternoon.
Complaints to the parish council have been passed into the hands of its insurer.
The car park was first installed in 2014 and offered relief to parents dropping pupils off down the narrow country lane.
It will not reopen until a third party deems it safe.
The parish council says it has approached Kent County Council to check the state of the car park.
KCC says it has no record of an enquiry being made so far.
We have approached East Farleigh Primary School for comment.
