Mourners attending funerals at a Norfolk crematorium could be offered extra parking spaces.

Busy funerals at Mintlyn, near King's Lynn, mean friends and family members have to park their cars along the busy B1145.

Now a report to councillors says up to 20 new spaces could be created at the site.

Kathy Mellish, West Norfolk council's portfolio holder for facilities, says: 'The feasibility of additional car parking at Mintlyn is looking much better than anticipated. There is hopefully the possibility of adding a further 20 spaces, which at the last count would clear the majority of cars from the roadside edge when we have a large gathering at the site. This would be a very positive step to ensure safety of visitors to the Crematorium, and when plans are finalised I will be able to confirm the actual numbers.'

Councillors discuss the report at full council on Thursday, February 23.
