Coventry hospital given permission to build new car park

A West Midlands hospital has been given permission to build a new car park to help ease traffic congestion that has caused delays for emergency vehicles.

Coventry City Council's planning committee has given the green light for about 420 extra spaces to be created at University Hospital in Coventry.

The new car park would be used by staff with 100 spaces from a current staff area given over to the public.

An extra 50 spaces were made available to visitors earlier this year.
