Big screen has been a turn-off
The aim for the TV screen in Humberstone Gate was to show the Olympics and other events, but the interest wasn't there to entice shoppers to stand and focus on the blot dominating the precinct.
A suggestion to relocate it to Town Hall Square (Mercury, September 17) is not ideal as it will stick out like a sore thumb, especially for those who prefer to meet for a chat or sit in peace for five minutes.
Your report (Leicester Mercury, July 17) mentioned to run and maintain this extravagant piece of equipment cost the city council £45,000 a year, later amended (September 17) to a colossal £105,000, a sum that could be assigned to more deserving causes.
