Visitors to Helston this Saturday can park for free all day in all Cornwall Council car parks.

It is aimed as a festive boost to trade, with Helston Town Council choosing December 16 as its free day.

It means people can park in the Castle Green, Cattle Market, Trengrouse Way, Trengrouse Way Extension and Tyacke Road car parks without having to buy a ticket - for one day only.

Free parking has already taken place this festive season in 61 car parks across Cornwall.
