Shoppers will be able to park in Weston-super-Mare for free in the run-up to Christmas.

North Somerset Council is offering free parking at the Sovereign Shopping Cenre on the four Thursday late-night shopping events before Christmas.

The council’s deputy leader, Cllr Elfan Ap Rees, said: “We want to encourage people to support our traders by shopping locally, and we believe that by continuing to offer free parking it will encourage spending in our local shops, cafés and businesses.”

Free parking will be available from 3pm until closing time at the Sovereign Shopping Centre until December 20.
