Anger over Whittlesey's supermarkets 'foul-up'


Anger has been growing in a town where two Tesco and Sainsbury's have been given permission to build on the same road.

John Elworthy, editor of the local newspaper, the Cambs Times, described the issue as a "monumental foul-up".

Fenland council said the planning process was ongoing.
