Vehicles parked near Oban Sailing Club

We do not know if these vehicles are anything to do with the WHYW fleet, but if any of you are the owner/s of Toyota Yaris SL14 JHO or Citron Berlingo SM09 XZL which are blocking the access to the Seafood Temple bin (due to be emptied first thing Wednesday morning and is at present completely blocked), but if so, if they are not removed by  Tuesday afternoon they will have no choice but to contact the police and report the said vehicles for obstruction.
