Ben Newman – better known as Spudman – has been asked by the Tamworth Borough Council to move his popular food truck before St Editha’s Square redevelopment begins later this year. 

Spudman described the news to his 3.5 million TikTok followers as “really bad” and that the alternative Market Street pitching suggestion was “not the greatest idea”. 

Newman believes that switching temporarily to Market Street would upset local traders and be bad for his own business. 

He also stated:  “I love this spot by the church, on the square – absolutely beautiful – and we’re getting kicked off.”

However, he also stated that the work on Editha’s Square would make it “better in the long run”. 

Work on the square is being carried out to make it more accessible and to improve lighting and seating. 

While members of the public will still be able to visit the square while the work is being done, all trailers will have to temporarily move to alternative locations. 

“All moves are temporary and we are working with our local market provider to find everyone suitable space elsewhere in Tamworth town centre and market,” stated chief executive of Tamworth Borough Council Stephen Gabriel.
