A cure for parking headaches at Glangwili Hospital in Carmarthen might have been found after an extension of a park-and-ride service.

Buses will link the Nantyci car park with the town centre and the hospital twice an hour from 9 February.

Health officials hope it will make parking "a little easier" during busy times at the hospital.

Staff and visitors will be encouraged to leave their cars and take the bus link to ease congestion.

"We strongly encourage our staff, patients and visitors to consider using the service which can be conveniently accessed from the A40 and train station," said Sarah Jennings of Hywel Dda University Health Board.

Buses will run from 07:00 to 19:00 GMT Monday to Saturday and also link with shops in the King Street area.

Carmarthen council and Hywel Dda will fund the revised service, which will involves free parking at Nantyci and a £1 day return fare.
