Some city centre car parks are at breaking point with every space taken as thousands visit the coast to soak up the sun.

Motorists are facing waits longer than 15 minutes to even get into some car parks, with drivers being told to make alternative arrangements to park in the city.

Brighton beach has been heaving with thousands of sunseekers this afternoon as the mercury reaches some of the highest temperatures we have seen all year.

Regency Square Car Park is currently at capacity with vehicles queuing in excess of 10-15 minutes to enter. We cannot advise how long it will be until spaces are available and drivers may wish to find alternative parking location.

Car parks at Regency Square and The Lanes are at full capacity and the council does not know when spaces may become available.
