Work is set to start on an £8.5m retail park in Leeds on the site of a derelict factory.

The former Denso Marston site, in Armley, will be demolished to make way for three new retail units and a 200-space car park.

Construction is due to begin in the summer and the site is scheduled to open in spring 2016, creating 100 jobs.

A number of national retailers are already lined up as tenants, developers Opus North, said.

A spokesman confirmed it was in discussions with B&M Homestore, Lidl and Iceland.

Leeds City Council gave the green light to plans for the Armley Road site, which has been vacant since the 1990s, earlier this month.
