Busker beware: Gothenburg traders close to tears
08:48 CET+01:00
Store owners on Gothenburg's most famous street, Avenyn, have called on local authorities to ban street musicians from certain areas of the city during business hours.

The chairman of the Avenyn trading association felt that his members had already heard more than enough.

"We have people constantly calling who are close to tears. Just imagine if somebody was playing the same tune on the accordion outside your room for eight hours a day," Bo Ribbenholt told Metro.

But local councillor Jan Hallberg (Mod) said he did not view busking as a political problem.

"Anyone disturbed by somebody playing music should try talking to them," he told Metro.
