Council at 'breaking point' as demonstration rumours lead to suspension of market
A town council has said they are at "breaking point" due to the abuse they have received regarding the suspension of a market after talks of a "revolt" appeared to surface.
After seeing social media reports of a demonstration at Downham's market this Friday, the town council has taken the decision to close the stalls for the next two weeks.
But the council has been accused of overreacting by a borough councillor and traders who told the Lynn News there was no real evidence of a demonstration.
