A PETITION for a multi-storey car-park at the John Radcliffe Hospital racked up nearly 100 signatures within hours.

The call for more car bays at the hospital was made by Mick Haines, the independent city councillor for Marston.

He put together the petition yesterday and by the afternoon had accumulated 74 residents signatures.

It comes after Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust approved plans for Automated Number Plate Recognition and signs around Headington that tell drivers how many spaces are left.
