COUNCILLOR Roy Miller said businesses will be able to seek compensation - if they can prove their firm has lost trade because on the ongoing A61 roadworks.

The long-running works are set to go on into November and businesses on the infamous road have already complained that they're being severely affected.

Cllr Miller said: "There is a policy in place where if they believe they have lost trade and can show their figures for the last three years, they can apply to the highways department for compensation."
