Wiltshire Council is making around £250,000 a year short-changing motorists in car parks.

It's because the council uses ticket machines which state "no change given".

A national newspaper submitted freedom of ­information requests to all 348 local ­authorities in England and Wales.

Wiltshire Council came top – making £730,000 in unreturned change over three years.
