Largs Market has been cancelled due to tomorrow's weather forecast of 35 mile an hour winds.

Chairman of Largs Events Ian Murdoch said: "It was the right decision - the market operator phoned me this morning and said that due to the forecast they had to pull the plug.

"It is the appropriate procedure and shows that they are taking heed of the weather warnings.

"The forecast is so bad that there was no option but to cancel the market. We hope to be back as per normal on the following Saturday."

The market is based in Gallowgate Street from 10am-4pm every Saturday, with plans for a second market in Tron Place. It is also hoped to have Christmas themed markets in the run up to the festivities.
