Following a public consultation Bristol's elected Mayor, George Ferguson, has announced his final budget.
Some streets in Bristol will be traffic free today as part of an experiment that could see cars banned on a regular basis next year.
Bristol Mayor George Ferguson has announced his new cabinet, which now features members from four political parties.
Bristol Mayor George Ferguson has hailed the first car free Sunday in Bristol City Centre as a success but says it will take time to decide if the scheme should become a permanent feature.
Several roads, including Baldwin Street and Corn Street were closed to traffic to allow pedestrians to enjoy street entertainment without cars or pollution from the traffic.
This is how Baldwin Street looks this morning for car-free Sunday.
Police horses are out & about today helping to #MakeSundaySpecial, don,t forget parts of Bristol city centre are traffic free today.
Baldwin Street, King Street and Corn Street are shut to traffic. Various events will be taking place to #MakeSundaysSpecial between 11am and 4pm. All roads will be closed from 9am til 6pm.
