Leicester Tigers fans urged to use park-and-ride

Leicester Tigers fans are being urged to use a new park-and-ride service to get to Saturday's match in a bid to ease congestion in the area.

Buses will deliver fans to the stadium for the game against Harlequins, which kicks off at 1500 GMT.

The £9.2m Enderby park-and-ride site terminates in the city centre but has a stop outside the Royal Infirmary, which is near the Welford Road stadium.

The facility boasts 1,000 car parking spaces and buses run every 10 minutes.

Charles Rayner, head of stadium operations at Leicester Tigers, said: "The opening of the new Caterpillar Stand this season means that attendances are exceeding 20,000.

"The new service will make it easier than ever for supporters to get to and from the ground while removing the need to find city centre parking."
