North Devon drivers get free-parking reminder

Motorists in north Devon are being reminded that car parks are free on Saturday afternoons and Sundays.

Torridge District Council said Sydney House car park in Torrington, Manor car park in Holsworthy and The Pill car park in Bideford were in the scheme.

The move is part of a scheme that started in March in a bid to help bring people back into towns to do weekend shopping.

The council added that charges would be frozen in 2012.
