The store in Church Street has been closed since Friday, May 22 whilst work takes places to mend damage caused by a leak from a neighbouring property.

But Tesco says repairs could take several weeks and no date has been given on when the shop is likely to reopen.

It said all staff have been redeployed to other Tesco stores in the area, including its Express stores in Friargate and Blackpool Road.
