Bristol Mayor faces 'no confidence' debate

Bristol Mayor George Ferguson will face a 'no confidence' debate later today over the way he's introduced residents' parking schemes.

Protesters have submitted a petition of more than 5000 signatures, enough to force a council debate.

Seven out of twelve proposed zones have now been approved, but campaigners argue they hit trade and force businesses to move.

Tonight's debate is purely a symbolic gesture, as the city's 70 councillors do not have the power to remove a directly-elected mayor from office.
