MARKET STALLS are being removed after a young boy was injured in a city centre bus crash.
Winchester City Council is suspending part of its High Street market this week following last week’s accident.
As previously reported, the 10-year-old boy was airlifted to hospital on Friday, after a collision in the High Street around 2pm.
It led to calls from councillors, Winchester’s MP and bus company Stagecoach to move the market over safety concerns.
But a city council spokesman said today: “Winchester City Council was sorry to hear of the incident in the High Street last Friday and our thoughts remain with those involved.
WINCHESTER City Council is making safety improvements to the High Street market after a bus collided with a boy next to the stalls last month.
The layout in the lower High Street will be changed with more stalls clustered together in small groups to allow bigger gaps and increased visibility for pedestrians and drivers.
