Major changes to a market have been unveiled in an bid to boost trade to a town on Teesside.

Redcar and Cleveland Council is planning to move the market to a bigger area by the town's clock precinct to attract more stallholders and shoppers.

The move is part of a plan to boost the town's trade and other proposals include more events as well as developing the town's seafront.

Local residents have until 14 January to let the council know their views.
