The free service is being run as an initiative by Norfolk County Council under the EU's Civitas scheme for cleaner and greener transport in cities.

Supporters believe it is perfect for those with lots of bags who want to drop them off to enjoy lunch with friends or carry on shopping into the afternoon.

The service carries all items, except cold or frozen goods, animals, flowers or plants and exceptionally large items.

A similar service was trialled during the Christmas period at Harford park and ride and is still continuing after being sponsored by the John Lewis store.
