The regeneration of Newport city centre took a step forward this morning, as the Capitol Car Park was demolished with explosives. It's making way for a new leisure and shopping complex. James Crichton-Smith reports on how hundreds of people came out to watch.
Hundreds of people gathered in Newport this morning to witness the demolition of the city's Capitol Car Park.
Parking wardens in Flintshire have issued more parking tickets in 10 weeks than the police in the same county did in one year. Almost 1,000 fines have been dished out since the council took over the responsibility from North Wales Police.
Two thirds of those tickets were issued in Mold. Ian Lang sent this report.
Antoinette Sandbach AM for North Wales wants Flintshire councillors to rethink their parking policies for Mold, after almost 1,000 tickets were issued since October.
Nearly 1,000 parking tickets have been given out in Flintshire in the past ten weeks, since new wardens were brought in.
Figures obtained by Conservative AM Antoinette Sandbach show that since October the 1st over £22,000 has been raised with a third of those in Mold.
This has prompted her to suggest that a 'rethink' is necessary on the council's parking policy.
Flintshire County Council say they did warn people about the changes and promises to spend any money raise on wages and car parks.
The cost of the fine is £50.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council says it will be bringing in civil enforcement officers to regulate parking in Barry.
A petition, calling for something to be done about illegal parking, was handed into the Senedd earlier.
Councillor Geoff Cox says the officers should be in place by March next year.
