The LBC visited Royal Surrey County Hospital yesterday with a relative, and forked out £9.50 for parking. 

On his show this morning he recounted his experience and explained why he was not happy about the charges put on both patients and staff. 

He said: "Now listen. I've got the money to pay for it. That's not the point, but I would rather be spending time with loved ones, thank you very much, than I would try to press money into a machine.

"And where's that money going? Do you think I want to be at this hospital? 

"Royal Surrey is not in the centre of town. I don't believe that people, especially not during the week between Christmas and New Year, are parking there to go and then do their shopping, you know, and pick up a gadget somewhere. 

"They're there because their relatives are ill So why was I paying for that? I don't understand it. I think that is inhumane."
