Drivers with disabilities say they're angry at a council's decision to charge them for parking. Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is imposing the charges from August. Blue disabled badge holders will be charged a normal parking fee on top of the £10 it costs for the annual blue badge.
Ken Akerman from Normanby parks in Redcar twice a week and estimates the change will cost him £1,000 over four years.
Ken's wife Jean says it will stop Ken from being independent.
Redcar and Cleveland Council says it can't afford to provide free disabled parking any longer, as a result of government cuts and people abusing the blue badge system.
Stockton Council is considering a similar parking charge for blue badge holders.
