World Cup hits EDDC where it hurts
Car parks virtually empty for England’s crunch game against Slovenia.
THE football World Cup has hit East Devon District Council where it hurts today - in lost revenue from car parks.
Lace Walk car park, the largest in Honiton, was virtually deserted from 2.30pm.
Civil enforcement officers were confronted with bleak scene when they arrived to check tickets at around half-time.
A quarter of the council’s revenue is generated from parking charges.
