I POPPED into town on Tuesday - the first day of the Bridge Street/Bridge Place parking ban - hoping to enjoy to enjoy a car-free shopping experience. Fat chance.
The ban was just hours old and already there were loads of people flagrantly flouting the new rules, and parking willy-nilly up and down the high street.
It was just like any other day.
Hopefully the county council and police will start dishing out some hefty fines to these wanton rule-breakers and tow their cars away for good measure.
