STRONG winds have forced the cancellation of Warwick Market for third week in a row.

Organisers CJ’s Events have called off the market on safety grounds after a yellow weather warning was issued for tomorrow (Saturday), with winds of 43mph expected.

Spokesman Jamie Walker said: “This is becoming increasingly frustrating and in five years of running markets, we’ve never had to cancel so many markets in such a short period.

“Stalls can become very dangerous in strong winds or gusts, it’s just not worth the risk. Safety is our main concern.




“This is having a financial impact on all involved.

“We know many traders and visitors will be upset by this decision, but hope they understand our reasons why. Our whole team hope the weather improves in the coming week, so we can get back into a routine and see our traders and visitors again.”
