Some good or bad news on car parking charges in Helston, depending on your point of view.

Ticket prices for the town's car parks are to stay the same over the next financial year, meaning your £1 will still get you two hours of parking.

Helston and Porthleven Cornwall Councillor Andy Wallis, who is chairman of the parking advisory board, told PPV: “What you pay today is what you pay next year. I think that's welcome and gives a balance for a couple of years, to see the impact of car parking on towns.”
