CONSERVATIVE plans to reopen Southampton's Bedford Place have divided opinion among business owners and residents - and now we want to know what you think.

As previously reported, the road was shut last year to allow for more outdoor seating and ensure social distancing.

Some traders said the move was positive, but others said it was a "total shambles".
