Town's residents underwhelmed by refurbished fountain

Work on a £50,000 fountain refurbishment designed to "attract more shoppers" to Northampton market has left local people underwhelmed.

The original ground-spurting £98,000 seven-jet installation built four years ago was turned off in 2012 after traces of legionella were found in the water.

A Northampton Borough Council spokesperson said: "The new refurbished fountain is a great addition to the entrance of the market square, and provides a welcoming area for people to spend time in and relax."

Residents said the new fountain was "not spectacular" and a "complete waste of money".
