Take a good look at these hospital signs: do you need to pay or not?

A disabled woman has criticised "confusing" and "unfair" signs in a hospital car park which she says make it unclear whether blue badge holders need to pay or not.

Lisa Sadler from Mapperley, Nottingham, was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2011 and has a blue badge.

From January 7, blue badge holders were told they had to pay the same as other patients and visitors to park at Nottingham's City Hospital and Queen's Medical Centre car parks.

The first 30 minutes are free and then it's £1 for up to an hour, £4 for up to two hours and £5.50 for up to four hours.

But when Lisa parked at City Hospital on Monday for an appointment, she was left confused by two signs.

One said blue badge holders park for free. The other placed directly underneath said they must pay to park.

Lisa added that on top of the confusing signs, the nearest pay machine was out of order and it could take some people with a disability 15 minutes each way to walk to an alternative pay station.

Nottingham University Hospitals Trust has apologised for any confusion.
