Drivers in a market town have received a festive gift from the most unlikely of places.

National Parking Enforcement was the parking operator at Miller's Walk in Fakenham.

NPE has become a rather controversial figure in the town, with parking fines being widely discussed in Fakenham. However, it seems to have left things on a positive note and opted to give free parking for the last week of its contract.

The car park is free to park in for the foreseeable future.

Peter Bellman, managing directors of CBGA Robson, which manages the car park, said: "NPE have handled this so well. They got the signs in quickly and sorted. We thank them for all their work."

CBGA Robson confirmed it will only be temporary while they work on signing on the next operator.
