It all comes down to definitions really. Illegal means 'against the rules'. The Highway code is amongst other things a 'rule book' so therefore, yes they are parked illegally.
However, some rules in the highway code and considered as a criminal offence, others are not. I am almost certain that this does not constitute a criminal offence, so the Police are unlikely to get involved.
What about your local council though? If a council can fine a resident for not putting their refuse out 'correctly', maybe they have some power in this case. Maybe worth a quick call to your local council offices.
