Plans to move an 800-year-old weekly market in Staffordshire could kill off trade in the town, campaigners fear.
Staffordshire Moorlands District Council wants to move the Leek outdoor market from Market Place to nearby pedestrianised Derby Street.
Shop owner Roger Warrilow, who started a petition against the plans, said: “If Leek market dies, Leek dies with it.”
However, council said moving the market will increase footfall in the town.
