A businessman who ran a stall on Mansfield’s market for 35 years has given up his pitch saying a radical overhaul is needed - including setting up car-boot style events.

Neal Wardman, director of Mansfield Woodhouse-based Domestic Supplies, has turned his back on the market and fears traders’ profits will continue to plummet unless decisive action is taken.

He says town centres have failed to cope with the advent of internet shopping, and the meteoric rise of supermarkets, and while free parking and better public transport links directly into the town centre could aid the issue, he suggests that car boot sales could be one trick the council is missing.
