TRAFFIC was queueing on Richmond Hill in Bournemouth this morning due to an issue with a car park.

Cars could be seen queueing down the hill to enter the NCP The Square car park.

Bournemouth Echo:

Steve Smyth, who works at Nationwide, said: “The barrier is stuck.

“The machine says that the ticket is paid for and free access but the barrier hasn’t come up.

“I’ve spoken to someone at the customer service desk and they said to look out for a man with a high-vis.

“They said it would be done in the next two minutes, but that was 20 minutes ago.”

Another Nationwide employee said: “We went to the office next to the exit of the car park and there is no one there. The lights are on but nobody’s home.”

NCP said that there had been a temporary technical problem this morning which was quickly fixed and the issue had now been resolved.
