An Aldi spokesman said: “There has been significant interest from local shoppers following the opening of our first store in Carnforth, and this has resulted in the car park becoming busy at certain times of the day.

“Aldi will be implementing a one-way system for the car park, and is arranging for arrows to be painted to highlight this.

“In addition, we will also look at painting an arrow on the exit to the main road to improve the traffic flow.”
