Retired man banned from markets


Blackburn Market, a no-go area for knife-sharpening pensioner.


A pensioner has been banned for l i fe f rom two council markets in Lancashire after sharpening a knife for a stallholder on some nearby stone steps and laughing about it when confronted by an official. Keith Holliday claims that


when he took the knife across the street from Blackburn Market to restore its edge on February 11, he had the blade up his sleeve. A passer-by, alarmed by the


sight of a man sharpening a knife in a public place, called the police, who subsequently interviewed the pensioner but decided that no offence had been committed. When Blackburn with Darwen Council’s deputy commercial manager, Debra Houldsworth, stopped the 72 year-old in the market the following day to discuss the incident, Mr Holliday admits that he laughed. He then received a letter


from Ms Houldsworth barring him for six months. Local media reports that


the letter said: “I spoke to you regarding this incident and you felt it was a laughing matter. “We are not happy you walked through the market with a knife in your hand on show to the public and that you felt it was not a serious matter and showed no remorse.” Last month Ms Houldsworth

caught Mr Holliday shopping at the indoor event, despite the six month ban, and he was consequently banned for life from both Blackburn and Darwen Markets. Mr Holliday told local media: “This is ridiculous. I was just helping out a stallholder who’s a friend. It is very heavy-handed. I was not a danger to the public.” He claimed that he was


a regular customer at the market and often helped out unpaid at stalls, including a popular pasta bar run by Pauline Sears. “On Mondays I bring in a


steel and sharpen her knives. This day I had forgotten it and she needed a knife sharpened.


I went across to the cathedral steps opposite to sharpen it. It was up my sleeve and I wasn’t brandishing it about. “I was surprised when I was interviewed by four policemen but they said I was okay. “The following day I saw


Ms Houldsworth and, thinking it was banter, I laughed. A couple of days later I got the letter banning me for six months. “She saw me in the market shopping and told me I was now banned for life from


both Blackburn and Darwen markets.” Pauline Sears, owner of


Don’t Walk Pasta Bar and the lady whose knife Mr Holliday had sharpened, described the life ban as “silly” and “over the top”. The council’s development


director, Martin Kelly, told local media: “Due to this worrying incident which led to a member of the public calling the police, we have taken the relatively unusual step of banning this individual. We


have the right to ban people who cause concern and upset to others and behave in this manner.” A spokesperson for


Blackburn with Darwen Council told Market Trader that the knife Mr Holliday had been carrying had not in fact been up his sleeve but behind his back, and that there had previously been some complaints from members of the public regarding Mr Holliday’s behaviour at the market.
