Plans to erect new LED electronic banners in Preston city centre's Flag Market area are being put forward to public consultation.

A demonstration of how they will work is scheduled for Friday, where images and animations created by young people from the Brookfield area will be shown.

The banners are being considered as part of the Preston Flag Market re-design project.

The Lancashire council said it wanted to gather people's thoughts on them.

Ken Hudson, leader of Preston City Council, said: "We want as many people as possible to give their views so if you are in the city centre on Friday and see the banners on display, please come along and tell us what you think."

The Flag Market is overlooked by some of the city's historic buildings, including the Harris Museum, war memorial, obelisk, law courts, former post office and town hall.

The area also plays host to a number of events throughout the year, including the annual pot fair.
