Malvern Hills District council has announced there will be free temporary car parking in Upton-on-Severn over the next few weeks to help encourage shoppers back in to the town following the recent floods.

It says the scheme will apply to pay and display car parks only and will run until the 23rd March. During the flooding the town was practically cut-off by floodwater.
