Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has today pledged his support to the Unite campaign for the future of the fish porters at Billingsgate Market.
The Spurs manager, who grew up near the market, has made public his opposition to the plans by the City of London Corporation, which manages the market, to make significant changes to the way that the market is run.
Harry Redknapp, manager of Tottenham Hotspur said: "The fish porters at Billingsgate are the heart of the market, they make it the vibrant and efficient business it is. The City of London Corporation must reconsider their plans which I believe will damage this important market. I come from this part of London, and from my school days I have friends who along with their families have worked at Billingsgate Market.
"I support the fish porters in their campaign to retain the market and its heritage. The City of London Corporation and the London Fish Merchants Association need to think again and reverse their proposal for the market."
