Hospital parking charge reduction called for by MP

Bath MP, Ben Howlett, has called on the government to reduce parking charges at hospitals.

The Conservative MP said NHS Trusts that run the car parks cannot lower their charges without cutting services for patients.

Up to four hours parking at the Royal United Hospital in Bath costs £4, at Taunton's Musgrove Park Hospital it costs £5.90 and at Cheltenham General and Gloucestershire Royal it costs £6.

BBC Points West's Robin Markwell reports.
