Durham's indoor and outdoor markets are due to reopen next month after coronavirus lockdown forced closure.

The outdoor market is expected to resume on June 13 and its indoor hall is due to open from June 22.

The markets have been closed since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We've heard from many traders and customers who want to see life begin to return to normal, but for us it is important that we get it right and we reopen safely.
