FREE parking has been extended to all essential workers at Bournemouth's NCP car parks.

These are at The Square, Hinton Road and Terrace Road.

NCP chief executive officer Jonathan Scott said: "We’re open where we can for all who need parking at this vital time. Please park with us at no charge.

"We hope this goes some way to helping all those who are still needing to work and care for people. We urge you to check on our website to make sure the car park you normally visit is still open as although most of our sites are, we are still having to close some down where landlords request that we do.

"We hope you all stay safe and well."

Last week the company announced free parking to all NHS staff.
