TWO Huddersfield landmarks have broken down.
Lindley Clock was stuck yesterday for a fifth day in a row, while the fountains at St George’s Square were also out of action.
Clr Tony Brice is unhappy that the clock on the corner of Lidget Street and Daisy Lea Lane has shown the time as 8.45 for the past five days.
The Lindley Conservative said: “I think it’s diabolical. It should have been repaired by now, it shouldn’t be stopped that long.”
A Kirklees spokesman said last night: “The council was aware of the fault following the Bank Holiday weekend and our engineers, Smith of Derby, were instructed about it the same day. Engineers are due to visit the clock and advise on repairs.”
Meanwhile, the fountains at St George’s Square are also out of action.
The jets in front of Huddersfield Railway Station have been off since last week.
The council spokesman said: “A fault on the pump has led to the fountains being temporarily out of action, but we expect this to be rectified within the next couple of days.”
The fountains are a centrepiece of the £5m revamp of the square which was completed 18 months ago.
