MARKET traders have hit out at the council after being told they cannot park up behind their pitches.
For years stall holders on the lower market have parked their vans behind their stalls but now they have been told to move them away or face action.
One of the town’s longest serving traders, Gordon Wren, who has been selling wool and knitting supplies on Ilkeston market for 45 years, has been suspended after arguments with the market manager over the issue.
Neighbouring trader, Mr Healey, told the Advertiser: “We are gutted about this.
“We have always had our vans parked at the back of our stalls and then out of the blue we’re told to get them off the market.
“We’ve had to park up on the street, that’s no use to us.
“It’s always been like this down here, we’ve always been able to park up where we are.
