The astronomical parking prices in Shaldon are shocking and not surprising to villagers, particularly in summer when there is a lot of tourist season.

One villager said: ‘Everybody is laughing about it – but at the end of the day if you can afford a £2million house and you want to live down by the river, an extra £100,000 probably doesn’t matter to you!’
