Herefordshire Council rejects Sainsbury's store

Plans to build a Sainsbury's store in Herefordshire have been rejected.

Sainsbury's applied to develop a 30,000 sq ft (2,790m sq) store and petrol station on New Mills estate in Ledbury, which it said would create 220 jobs.

The application was rejected by county councillors who objected to its size and said that only 44 of the 220 jobs would be full-time.

The site is currently occupied by agricultural firm Galebreaker.
