Salisbury City Council says it is waiting to see guidance before deciding whether Salisbury Charter Market will close during the second lockdown.

In March, the outdoor market in Market Place was temporarily halted as the country went into the first lockdown.

It was the first time the biweekly event was cancelled in its 750-year history.

As restrictions were eased, the market returned on Saturday May 16 and has been running ever since with social distancing measures in place.

Following the announcement of another four-week shutdown starting on Thursday to curb the spread of coronavirus, it is unknown whether the event will be called off for the duration of the lockdown.

A spokesperson from Salisbury City Council says civic chiefs are waiting to see updated guidance and regulations on outdoor markets.

A decision will be taken once this has been received.
