Letter: Parking bays seem to lack support

On walking through the Albion Centre towards East Street, I noticed the new ‘thirty minute’ parking bays recently introduced by the council. I was amazed to discover that one of the bays appears to be floating in mid air (see right).

If the bays were marked, why was this problem not fixed beforehand?

The attitude seems to be that if you dare to park your car for free then you can take the risk of losing your vehicle as the bay collapses!

It appears this parking policy has no visible means of support!
