Broken parking meters boost trade in Cardigan, say traders

Shoppers in a mid Wales town have welcomed a temporary reprieve in parking charges after meters were damaged.

Some pay and display machines at locations across Cardigan, Ceredigion have been out of order since early June after they were smashed by vandals.

Traders claim business has boomed in their absence, with one business reporting a 30% rise.

But workmen have been seen fixing the broken meters, and they are expected to back up and running by Monday.
