Nuneaton Street Market impacted by high winds
Published on Tuesday, 23rd January 2018
Severe weather has led to the cancellation of Nuneaton’s regular street market today.
With wind gusts expected to exceed 50mph, far beyond the safe tolerance for market stalls, the Council has had no choice but to limit trading to just those regular market traders with perishable goods who are able to trade from their vehicles.
Brent Davis, Director of Assets and Street Services said:
“We measured wind speeds in the market place in the very early hours of this morning and found that the conditions were unsafe for us to erect the market stalls.
“Obviously, safety is paramount and whilst it is so disappointing to have to cancel the market, we can’t take risks. The dangers presented by stalls being blown over are frightening and safety has to come first.”
