Seven councils in Wales have been making disabled badge holders pay for parking, a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
The BBC report:
Disabled drivers with blue badges are being charged to park at council-run car parks in almost a third of local authority areas in Wales, figures show.
Charities are calling it a tax on disability at a time of benefit cuts and welfare reforms.
But councils argue they are facing severe financial pressures, while the Welsh government said it was up to local authorities whether to charge.
