Grimsby parking row

Drivers in North East Lincolnshire say they'll fight plans to increase charges to park their cars outside their houses.

Residents in Grimsby and Cleethorpes have been told the cost of a parking permit is to rise from £15 to £80.

And if 70% of people reject the scheme, the county council says it'll be forced to withdraw permits altogether which will make parking even more difficult. Those against it are holding a meeting tonight to try to find a better solution.

We have been speaking to Councillor Andrew Defreitas about the change.
