BETTER signage could be installed in a Herefordshire town after a driver ran over a market trader's foot.

A meeting of Leominster Town Council's Communications and Events Committee heard at their March meeting that a vehicle had driven through the town's weekly market, running over a trader's foot.

The incident was captured on CCTV, councillors were told, and has been reported to the police.


The market takes place every Friday in the town's Corn Square, featuring a wide range of stalls including fruit and vegetables, fresh fish, flowers and plants, bread, cheese, meat and pies, clothing, pet supplies, and homewares.

A farmers' market also takes place on the second Saturday of the month in the square between 9am and 1pm, with regular stalls selling goods including meat, fruit, preserves, chocolate, plants and more.

It was resolved at the meeting to note that investigations are being made into obtaining improved signage to be placed at the top of Victoria Street to advise the public as to when a market is taking place in Corn Square.
