Launceston market closed over hygiene concerns

A continental market in Cornwall has been stopped from trading because of concerns over some hygiene issues, public health officials said.

The market, which opened in Launceston on Thursday and featured clothes and food stalls, was closed on Friday.

Officers from Cornwall Council's public health and protection team said it was following complaints about the way it was run.

It had been scheduled to remain open until Sunday afternoon.

The county council officers said it was closed with the full co-operation and agreement of Launceston Town Council after the town council also found that operators were not complying with terms and conditions of their agreement.
