DEFIANT market traders in South Shields have vowed to stay put while demolition work goes on around them.
The stallholders have hit out before work starts on Monday to flatten the Wouldhave House office complex in South Shields Market Place, fearing they will be dispatched to other parts of the town once the 14-week demolition work starts.
They’re determined to stay and “fight their corner” after claiming the very future of the historic market is at stake.
Northumberland-based Owen Pugh Contracts is expected to have demolition workers on site next week, and a section of the market place will be cordoned off for the duration of the work.
Stallholder Robbie Ridley said he was determined to “fight for the right to work” during the demolition process.
