Signs that Camberley town centre is "starting to thrive" have been reported by the council.

Surrey Heath Borough Council said several new shops had already opened the Mall and more were moving into Camberley High Street.

Two businesses opening up are popular high street chains, the council added.

Councillor Colin Dougan said: "These retailers moving in, is a clear sign that the local economy is starting to thrive again."

He said Camberley, like all town centres across the country, had been affected by the economic down turn.

Shops opening up include Cargo, Wagamama, Supercuts, Wilkinson and Poundland.
