Organisers of Lincoln's Christmas Market say they are looking to improve pedestrian access after receiving comments that the market was too busy.

The City of Lincoln Council said the German-style market had been attended by about 200,000 people.

The authority said it had received some comments about the market being too overcrowded to enjoy.

Lincoln Christmas Market started in 1982 with just 11 stalls. It now attracts about 300 traders.

John Latham, director of development and environmental services, said the council was considering making changes to the layout of the stalls to improve movement around the market.
