Long queues formed in a Bury St Edmunds town centre car park after two of its ticket machines failed at the weekend.

Bury Free Press reader Paul Kingsbury said he had to stand in a 'ridiculous' 10-minute queue at the St Andrew's Street flexi-stay car park in order to register his car and then faced the same length of queue to register his exit.

A spokesman for West Suffolk Council, which operates the car park, said: "We are aware of a network issue that meant two of the flexi-stay machines stopped working. The other three machines were unaffected and remained available to customers to use for checking in or out. The network issue has now been resolved."
