Calls for brakes to be put on ‘zombie’ car parks

People living in Manchester city centre have hit out at unsafe ‘­zombie’ car parks springing up on the sites of old buildings.

Concerned residents have slammed the car parks as shoddy and dangerous and have reported a series of health and safety concerns at sites near the former BBC building in Oxford Road and River Street near the Mancunian Way.

Those two car parks are run by Essex-based firm Total Car Parks and it is understood that Manchester council and the British Parking Association – which represents car park operators – are now investigating.
