Nottinghamshire County Council have agreed to increase their contribution to the Special Hardship Fund set up to help traders affected by the tram works.

The council's increasing the package they offer to £50,000. Businesses along the extended routes through Beeston and Clifton say they've struggled to cope during the construction of the new tram lines.
