Sainsbury's buy Woolworths site at Kempston

A former Woolworths depot in Bedfordshire has been bought by supermarket chain Sainsbury's.

The supermarket is taking over the depot at Marsh Leys Distribution Park at Kempston, near Bedford, and will provide 300 new jobs.

Woolworths left the site in 2009 when it went into administration.

Sainsbury's will use the warehouse as a distribution centre in a move that the Mayor of Bedford, Dave Hodgson, has called "excellent news".
