A £5 million hotel was due to open its doors in Shropshire today creating 40 jobs.

The Premier Inn chain opened its latest venture in Newport which includes The Three Fish Beefeater Restaurant.

The 50-bedroom hotel at Mere Park, on the edge of Newport, is expected to pull in tourists and diners to the town.

Bosses were expecting to open the hotel on Monday but last-minute finishing touches to its interior meant it was delayed until today.
