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.

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.
