A new park-and-ride scheme is due to begin operating between Clifton and the Portway.

The service is being introduced by Bristol City Council ahead of the introduction of a residents' parking zone in Clifton village next March.

Some businesses have protested against the introduction of the parking zone with one hiring a tank and driving it through the streets.

The service is due to begin on Monday with buses every 20 minutes.

The park and ride will start at 07:00 from Shirehampton and run to the village until 19:15.

A similar service between Clifton and Long Ashton was introduced in April.

"It's all here, offering a quick and convenient alternative to driving into the village and fighting for parking," said Councillor Mark Bradshaw.
