A tyre dealer is moving to make way for the £17million redevelopment of Brighton's Open Market.

Fields Tyres is relocating from Francis Street, Brighton, to a new site in Hove.

The move was agreed with Brighton and Hove City Council which is helping the firm to relocate.

Developers Hyde-Marlet want to build 87 homes on the site to help fund a dramatic redevelopment of the Open Market.

An outline proposal agreed by the council earlier this year includes 46 new covered market stalls and 12 workshops for people making and selling their own products.

Fields Tyres is expected to open its new shop at the St Joseph's Close business park off Old Shoreham Road, Hove, on January 4.
