A caravan owner is worried he will be 'forced off' a holiday park due to a new rule that states the vehicles must be a year 2000 model or newer.
The new rule only came into effect on March 1, and could cost one disgruntled owner £41,000 for an upgrade, which he said he can't afford.
The man, who wanted to stay anonymous, has a caravan at Kingsley Holiday Park in Abergele, north Wales.

Holidaymakers with vehicles over the age limit risk being removed from caravan parks as they no longer meet the safety requirements.
Despite the man's annoyance, and worry that he could be shipped off Lyons Holiday Parks, who own the site, said the new rule is common across the industry.
The man claims he has no option but to leave the caravan park next month despite "pleading" with the owners to let him stay, reports North Wales Live.
The loyal customer of seven years said he had been left with no realistic option but to leave the site as he cannot afford to upgrade during the cost of living crisis.
He said: "The only option Lyons have offered me is to upgrade to one of their caravans costing £41,000 – which I can't afford."
The owner claims he signed an agreement with former owners Abbeyfields which stated his caravan could stay on the site, as long as it was well-maintained.

However, he has since been informed that when the site was bought by Lyons in 2019, this agreement became invalid.
He continued: "I've tried everything, I've emailed them, I've pleaded, I've practically got on my hands and knees but they're just not interested.
"I want to make people aware of the treatment people are facing with owning a caravan on Lyons parks because I'm now having to give up my much-loved caravan where I've had so many happy memories.
"I suffer from depression and anxiety and I'm registered blind and this is my haven that I come to, to relax.
"I just can't believe there's no other option and that I will be forced off the site and will no longer have somewhere to escape to with my health conditions."
