Paying for parking via mobile phone described as 'discriminatory'

Forcing people to pay for parking via a mobile phone has been described as discriminatory towards older people. Under new plans by Nottingham City Council drivers will only be able to pay by mobile phone in three new parking pay-zones.

The Nottingham Elders' Forum says it is no good for people who do not regularly use mobiles or who pay with credit and debit cards.
