Fears for the future of Northampton's historic market

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."

– Anne Andreoli, Market trader

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.
