The controversial roll-out of resident parking zones in Bristol continues today, as Bedminster becomes the latest area to go live with the scheme.

Mayor George Ferguson introduced the zones across the city to stop commuter parking and reduce congestion.

The scheme has been met with mixed reviews, with many concerned about the impact on trade. In Montpelier, signs and parking meters were vandalised.
