Pictures of a proposed £410,000 redevelopment of an indoor market in a Leicestershire town have been revealed.

Harborough District Council had considered moving traders from the Market Hall, in Market Harborough, and leasing it to a major retail chain.

However, protests from stallholders and some residents in March 2012 forced the authority to rethink the proposals.

Work is set to get under way next year and once complete the building will be open seven days a week.

The current market is open every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday and has 40 different businesses spread over 72 stalls.
