Manchester traffic wardens to get 'friendly' makeover

A council has decided to give its traffic wardens a makeover to make them seem friendlier and more approachable.

Manchester City Council is introducing black uniforms with plum caps and epaulettes to replace the high-visibility red ones.

Nigel Murphy is a Labour Councillor in Hulme.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast that the red uniforms looked "a bit tired" and were "an aggressive colour."
