Parking at a price

An Aberdeen homeowner is offering frustrated drivers a compact parking place all of their own - for £15,000.

Jim Annand became the owner of the small piece of land when he bought a flat two years ago.

He is now hoping to tempt motorists who are unhappy at having to trawl the streets for a space with his one-vehicle spot on John Street.

The 35-year-old Royal Mail operations manager told BBC Scotland: "This space is for life."

He said a surveyor had valued it at £15,000 after he realised he could take advantage of demand.

He said: "To be honest it was in the region if what I thought it would be and have already had one or two interested parties.

"Current valuations of renting a parking space are about, £1,000 a year.
