More than 15,000 property owners listed with YourParkingSpace.co.uk made more than 500 pounds (226.8 kg) (226.8 kg) by simply renting out their empty driveways to motorists looking for cheaper or more convenient car parking.

It’s closely followed by Birmingham, Leeds, Bristol and Manchester respectively.

“For many people it’s almost as if their drivewys are paved with gold,” he said.
