Refunds to begin week commencing Monday 10 October
Worcester City Council has been informed that car park users will start to see refunds appearing in their bank accounts next week.
The Council continues to hold twice daily meetings with Flowbird in a bid to get the matter sorted out as swiftly as possible.
A spokesperson for Worcester City Council, said: "We are doing our utmost to resolve these issues as quickly as possible and would again like to sincerely apologise to all those affected. We would like to assure our customers that the matter continues to be a top priority for us and we are having twice-daily meetings with Flowbird to ensure that we can keep people updated on the situation, which is sadly not being resolved as speedily as we would wish. We will be in touch with all customers who have contacted us thus far to keep them informed and would urge everyone to refer to our website and social media for the latest information. We will ensure that nobody has suffered any financial loss as a result of this issue"
