George Michael fans heading to the singer's concert at Carrow Road on Tuesday will be able to use an evening park-and-ride service from three Norwich sites.

The facilities at Thick-thorn, off the A11; Harford, off the A140, and at the airport will all be open until midnight to try and ease the strain on traffic and parking around the city centre.

Buses will travel from the sites to Norwich bus station, where a shuttle service will depart from Bay 7 to the football ground every 15 minutes, from 4.30pm to 8pm.

After the concert, buses will be provided directly from Wherry Road, near the Riverside Swimming Centre, back to each of the three park-and-ride sites.

Parking, including travel on all buses for up to five people, can be pre-booked by sending a £4 cheque to arrive no later than Friday made payable to Norfolk County Council, together with your home address and which site you wish to use for parking, to: Passenger Transport Group, Planning & Trans-portation Department, County Hall, Norwich, NR1 2SG.

Concert-goers paying on the day can get a parking ticket for £1.60, which also covers their fee for travel to the bus station, and must pay £1 per person to ride on shuttle bus to Carrow Road.
