A North East Lincolnshire Council spokesperson said: “Our town centre is home to plenty of great shops offering something for everyone, and plenty of bargains.

“To support this community of retailers, we’re once again offering free, extra late-night parking this year so people can ditch their car and shop-til-they-drop.

“This is a great excuse to pop in to town and buy those early or last-minute presents.”
