Work starts today to create a new square in Leicester to commemorate the Queen's Jubilee.
The city's mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, says the square will draw visitors to the city and boost businesses ahead of their City of Culture bid. Local traders, however, fear the loss of car parking will cause problems.
The work, costing £4 million will take 8 months to complete.

Its proposed location will be in St. Nicholas Circle, in the city's Old Town connecting the main shopping area to the historic part of Leicester.
Sir Peter Soulsby explains how the square, if given the go-ahead, will connect the different parts of the city.
