TRADERS have issued a plea to the council to rethink a ban on town centre traffic after chaos on the first day of a nine-month trial.
Confused lorry drivers were forced to reverse along the newly pedestrianised streets while trade was “devastated” at established businesses last Friday.
Ann Squires of Squires Antiques urged the council to rethink the scheme after sales plummeted at her Preston Street shop.
She said: “It has devastated us. I lost all my trade because people couldn’t park to pick up antiques. I simply can’t carry heavy furniture to a nearby car park.
