Legal challenge over store fails

A supermarket is to be built in Worcestershire after a court rejected a legal challenge against it.

Midcounties Co-operative launched an appeal against Wyre Forest District Council's decision to approve plans for a Tesco store in Stourport.

It was the second appeal by the Co-op after one to the High Court failed in March 2009.

A Wyre Forest council spokesman said he welcomed the clarification after months of uncertainty.
