Denise Black, 60, retired from Leicester said: "Yes, I think it would be better. It's not as busy as it normally is today but it's still busy, it would be good, especially in the pandemic because you are trying to dodge people."

Virginia Pinder, 72 retired from Doncaster said: "I think for visitors if you want to come for a couple of hours then you've got to park and ride, it seems like a lot of messing around. [Cromer] doesn't seem so congested with people that it needs to be pedestrianised."
