Parking charge introduced at Brighton's Preston Park

Parking charges and a six-hour maximum time limit are being introduced in Brighton's Preston Park to stop it being used by commuters.

Brighton and Hove City Council said the charge was to tackle the problem of commuters using Preston Park as a free all-day car park.

The move follows a petition signed by more than 2,000 people, protesting over the number of cars in the park.

It will cost 50p per hour, rising to £3 for between three and six hours.
