Shortly before 9am the bollard was sent tumbling and pedestrians gathered to carry it the short distance to the kerb.

The bollards were installed as part of the £3.4million shared space scheme in Fishergate during late 2014.

Since then drivers have struggled to ensure they don’t hit the concrete pillars.
