Bosses at South Lakeland District Council have been criticised for wanting to close a popular, but unauthorised, car park and turn it into a play-park.

The waste land at New Road, Kendal, has been used as a free car park for up to 180 vehicles for years but council officials say a by-law means it should stop.
