New awnings in Ridley Road Market have brought mixed blessings for traders who feel the council should instead prioritise making parking cheaper in the run up to Christmas.
They were installed along with new signage in an attempt to smarten up the bustling Dalston street, but some traders have reported the awnings have been leaking.
One trader, the owner of PM Prime Fish, said: “I’m not happy with the new awning, because when it rains, water comes inside the shop. My old awning was better.”
He said the shop had been forced to close for five days while the awning was fitted and had lost customers during this time.
