LAST week I came into Grays and found new park-ing meters with the need to insert my reg no.

I suppose this is to stop me giving away the ticket I had paid for, I guess this is to help to fund the ten milion pounds new offices.

This flies against what I had heard on Radio 4 about the town up north which has scrapped parking charges and they now have a mini boom.

When the council was asked about the return of charges the answer was “not in these difficult trading times”.

I guess this must tell us something.
