Seven Sisters revamp plan angers traders

Campaigners against plans to redevelop part of Tottenham in north London claim the proposals will destroy local businesses and ruin the character of their high street.

Haringey Council has approved plans which include replacing the indoor market at Seven Sisters Station saying it will bring more money and jobs to the area. But some traders fear they will not be able to afford to return.

The BBC spoke to Nick Jopling of Grainger, market trader Alejandro Gortazar, shopkeeper Malti Patel and Alan Strickland of Haringey Council.
