A COUNCIL says 720 people have been fined for not displaying parking tickets at The Look Out and Coral Reef in the two months since controversial fees were imposed.

The vast majority of the fines handed out by Bracknell Forest Council (586) at the sites between September 17 and November 19 were at The Look Out.

The fine is �50, reduced to �25 if paid within 14 days.

More than 37,100 parking tickets were bought at the two attractions in the same time period.

It is not known whether visitor numbers have fallen because of the introduction of charges; the council does not have the visitor numbers for last year, as the car parks were not ticketed then.

The council introduced the charges as part of its plans to fill a funding gap in its finances.
