Mayor Ferguson hails first car free Sunday

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.
