As long-standing readers might recall, the Eye doesn’t publish photos of major events in the town. We can’t compete with the zillions of smart phones and smart cameras taking photos, so we don’t try. But we did take three particular photos during the car show yesterday. One shows the queues that built up at the entrance to Main Square car park. The second, taken shortly afterwards, was taken from the council’s website. It shows that there were 169 empty spaces in the car park – that means one in every six spaces was empty. Yet it was still a painful experience for those arriving. We despair; the council doesn’t seem to try to do anything to improve the situation.
And the third photo is of another queue – of people waiting to pay to leave.
