His departure follows what are described by the Borough Market Trustees as "management changes" at the market which has gained a high profile for its vibrant Friday and Saturday retail food market.

Simon Tattersfield, a Chartered Surveyor and former chief executive of a large housing association, has been thanked by the Trustees for his work over the past five years.

It is understood that a new position of Chief Executive, reflecting a different role, will be advertised early next month.
