Busy car parks and queues of traffic can mean only one thing - Christmas shopping is in full swing in Bury St Edmunds.

With just three weeks to go until the big day, many people are choosing to take advantage of the town’s excellent variety of shops, but it may be advisable to allow a little extra time to park.

The Parkway multi-storey was full earlier today, though the council says there are a few spaces there now, and the Cattle Market car park has no spaces, currently.

There are, however, at least 30 at Ram Meadow and around 20 at St Andrew’s Street.

A spokesman for St Edmundsbury Borough Council said: “It is Christmas and it is busy in Bury. The Cattle Market car park is full but there is a steady turnover of spaces and we can see via our CCTV that there are empty spaces at both St Andrew’s Street and Ram Meadow.”
