    Can you please clarify the PARKING charges. You state on this site £5 yet many people believe it to be £10. Sincerely yours

    On the actual website page. Look and see. Many visitors will be upset. I spoke to someone 2 days ago at the NMN who assured me that they would iodate and correct it. To date and even at this late hour they have not done it.
