A market trader named Wayne Bellows has been told not to shout about the wares he has for sake on his Fruit and Veg stall after a complaint over noise.
Lymington and Pennington Town Council in Hampshire has reminded Mr Bellows, 53, of regulations that stallholders must not cause a “nuisance”.
Mr Bellows said the warning was “absolutely ridiculous” and ironic, given his name.
The town’s mayor said the council had a duty to follow up the complaint.
Mr Bellows is the fourth generation of his family to sell his wares in the market on Lymington’s High Street.
He said he used a traditional call to promote his produce from about 10:00 on market days.Tags: Lymington Market Wayne Bellows
