Beach car parks at Goodrington South Sands, Youngs Park, Goodrington and Broadsands have been re-opened, as well as on-street parking at the Eastern Esplanade on Paignton seafront.

With Torbay Council re-opening the beach parking areas, along with the enforcement of double yellow lines, loading areas, dropped kerbs and zig zags, enforcement will now start for the May to September restrictions and pay-and-display areas.

Cllr Mike Morey said: 'Anyone using the parking areas is asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines and ensure they use hand sanitiser before and after using the parking machine. Alternatively, customers are able to pay for parking 'hands free' using the Park Mobile app.'

Lower Union Lane car park in Torquay remains closed to all users.
