POLITICAL harmony broke out at a meeting of Milton Keynes Council over a motion to build a new lorry park in the city.

Lib Dem leader Sam Crooks recently pitched the idea to Cabinet that a place for drivers to park up safely should be built in Milton Keynes.

And councillors agreed atTuesday night’s council meeting that something needed to be done for the drivers.

Mr Crooks said: “I’ve been looking into possible locations.

“There are still unused sites on the east of the city at Eagle Farm, Glebe Farm and Church Farm.

“The council is considering how best to develop these at the moment.

“I think that we should look very seriously at a lorry park for one of them.”
