The main contractors have started work on the new market in Watford.

TSP is now on site and has completed the new illuminated brick footpath, enabling shoppers to reach the market from Beechen Grove and Clarendon Road.

Elected Mayor of Watford, Dorothy Thornhill said: "I am delighted that work is underway on Watford’s new market and that residents and visitors will soon be able to see progress on site.

"Our main contractors, TSP are a local company with a proven track record, and together I am sure we will be able to deliver a fantastic home for our traders and a wonderful market for the town."
