  4. WATCH: Reaction to increased on-street parking charges in Hull

    Sarah Corker

    BBC Look North

    People in Hull have been telling me what they think to the council's decision to charge more for on-street parking.

    The authority says the money they make from parking fees has fallen during the current redevelopment works.

    It'll cost you 10p an hour more to park on the street from June, but it will be cheaper to stay at the George Street multi-storey.
