Despite being a fixture in the town for hundreds of years there are fears about the future of Northampton's historic market.
Some stall holders say changes to the layout in the Market Square mean they will get less footfall and could be forced to shut up shop.

Officials insist all traders were invited to have their say at a meeting.
