I have noted with interest the discussions about parking charges in Brighton.

Recently, I visited the cinema at Odeon Kingswest, followed by dinner out. Bear in mind this was Narnia and a two-course meal, not the entire Lord Of The Rings trilogy followed by a five-course meal at the Metropole.

When I returned to my car, I found my parking fee after this modest excursion was £8.50, £2 per hour.

Somehow the Argus' meal for £10 isn't so appetising any more, so I shall remain in the less extortionate area of Worthing.
