Welsh-only car park ticket machine delays drivers

Some visitors to a seaside town were left frustrated when a pay and display parking machine gave instructions only in Welsh.

Queues developed as non-Welsh speakers struggled to work out how to use the ticket machine at the underground car park in Rhyl, Denbighshire.

The council is looking into it, but said drivers had other payment options.

It also said the machines default to Welsh, but users can change that by pressing a "language button".

Queues were made worse when the machine failed to recognise debit cards.

What if the "language button" changes it to Cornish? :unsure2:

 

(Nobody speaks Cornish anymore, including people in Cornwall. :whistle:)

I usually have a certain facility with languages written with English alphabet characters but Welsh looks like a massive box full of consonants exploded and were randomly strewn across the page :ph34r:
