STREET traders on The Moor in Sheffield have accused council chiefs of ‘misleading’ the public by claiming the market is making a loss when a council memo shows it is set to make £12,000 profit.
Stallholders are in a dispute with Sheffield Council about where they will be temporarily relocated during work to repave The Moor next year.
They say the council claimed the Moor Market was due to make a £20,000 loss during the 2011/12 financial year to take away public sympathy for their cause.
Stallholder William Glover said: “The council made the claim when they knew it was not the case.
“It was deliberate spin put out to mislead the public and take away sympathy for our cause. It’s just appalling.”
