In mid-January the plinth, road decoration, bollard, was seen lying in the middle of Fishergate after being knocked down.

Lancashire County Council says it has no plans to change the current road layout where Fishergate joins Corporation Street.

It is listed as a shared-space, where drivers are expected to give way to each other.

During the Christmas shopping period the county council had to introduce stop-go signs due to traffic congestion.

The new look Fishergate is being extended further up towards Church Street and Cheapside is to close for six weeks while roadworks take place.
