Traders have hit out at plans to tear down a Manchester market to make way for a leisure centre.
The Grey Mare Lane site has been earmarked by the council for a sports centre as part of regeneration around Manchester City’s Etihad Campus.
The community assets, which will be built along Alan Turing Way, include a sports science institute, leisure centre, swimming pool and a 600-place sixth form college to be shared by local students and Manchester City academy players.
But the proposals will spell the end for Grey Mare Lane market.
Up to 60 traders sell from the site each week, according to the co-operative which took over the running of the market in 2003 and lease the land from the town hall.
