From yesterdays Bristol Evening Post:
Outside Bristol Zoo is the car park, with spaces for 150 cars and 8 coaches. It
has been manned 6 days a week for 23 years by the same charming and very polite
car park attendant with the ticket machine. The charges are £1. per car and £5.
On Monday 1 June, he did not turn up for work. Bristol Zoo management phoned
Bristol City Council to ask them to send a replacement parking attendant.
The Council said "That car park is your responsibility." The Zoo said "The
attendant was employed by the City Council... wasn't he?" The Council said
Gone missing from his home is a man who has been taking daily the car park fees
amounting to about £400. per day for the last 23 years...!
