Last year, planning permission was granted to see the former Lord Hill pub in Market Drayton extended and turned into a Tesco Express.

The store was to replace the neighbouring One Stop shop - also owned by Tesco - once the lease had expired.

Shropshire Council also gave the go-ahead for the building of two detached dwellings to be built on land at the rear of the property.
