Homeowners living around Royal Preston Hospital have been offering out their driveways to staff and visitors.Advertisement
A Facebook group has been set up to help those struggling to park at the hospital.
Student nurses have had their cars vandalised in nearby streets in Fulwood as pressure on hospital parking grows.
