Market traders in Ipswich say they are struggling after they were moved from Cornhill while it is being redeveloped.

The £3.5 million project to re-design the town's square has meant market traders have been moved to the side of the town hall.

They fear customers don't know they are now on a side street and say their takings have been hit.

“We are in constant dialogue with market traders during this period of works and can confirm that we are not charging the market traders any rent for their pitches during this period.

"We continue to support the market traders by promoting their stalls and offers.”
