Security bollards are to be installed as part of the redevelopment of Haworth's Main Street this summer.

In addition to the security bollards, there will be new plant containers, bins and seating, reported the Telegraph and Argus.

Work has already begun on re-laying parts of the street, which is known for its steepness.

The decision to make improvements to the area came after local residents raised concerns about the future of the iconic setts on the historic street.

Russell Brown, a councillor, told the newspaper that after much "heated" discussions, the final plan was one that he was pleased with.

He said: "These meetings have been about listening to and collating everyone’s views on the various street furniture options for the Main Street project.

"The improvements will mean new seats, placed to highlight the vistas across the valley and up Main Street."

It is expected that the work will be complete in the next ten weeks.

Security bollards in South Shields have been given a fresh new lick of paint as the coastal town prepares for a summer of activity and entertainment.
