Wolverhampton City Council has come under fire for spending thousands of pounds on new "Welcome to the City" signs. The 25 boards celebrating key landmarks and venues went up on the city outskirts earlier this year.
The council says they'll generate pride and income for Wolverhampton. But Liberal Democrat campaigners think it's money poorly spent. Chris Halpin reports.
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.
"This will be the finish of us, this will affect us so badly. The council do not know what they're doing, they have no idea whatsoever, no consultation whatsoever with traders.
"We might make it until Christmas, but we won't make it after that I don't think, so it'll be the end for us. Very sad, very angry."
Northampton Borough Council is spending £30,000 on the project and says the works will improve the market and bring in more shoppers and traders.
Officials insist all traders were invited to have their say at a meeting.
