Tesco Express opening pushed back until tomorrow

The opening of Tesco Express in Furze Platt Road has been pushed back by a day.

The store in the former Golden Harp pub building was originally due to open at 8am this morning with an official ceremony taking place at 10.30am.

This will now take place tomorrow.

The opening of the store has sparked controversy among residents living nearby who have been campaigning for more than 18 months to stop the supermarket giant from moving in.

Chairman of Furze Platt Action Group (FPAG) Mark Newcombe, set up in opposition to the plans, said the group is planning a large demonstration due to be held outside the store on a Saturday in the next few weeks.

He said there is also a chance of campaigners pitching up to protest at the opening tomorrow.
