COUNCIL chiefs have moved to clear up confusion at a Great Yarmouth car park.
Last week the Mercury revealed how drivers were being asked to pay and display at the Blackfriars Road car park even though it is free to use.
A notice has since been placed on the new pay point board informing drivers that parking is free.
Signs also point to the non-existent ticket machine at the borough council owned car park near the Time and Tide Museum.
Local resident Christopher Gilbert regularly spotted drivers wandering around the car park in a vain attempt to purchase a ticket.
He said: “I don't think it was a co-incidence that the notice was put up just after the article was published. The sign even has a list of tariffs and it was definitely confusing people.”
