Protestors take on Tesco scheme
A group of Derbyshire residents are taking their opposition to a new supermarket onto the streets.

The Belper Against Tesco Superstore action group have set up an exhibition to show the impact they believe the development could have.

The group claims the new 80,000 sq ft store on Derwent Street would damage local traders and increase pollution.

Tesco has said it is currently engaged in confidential talks with a range of local planning authorities.

Campaigner Andy Minion said: "We are unveiling our new stall which has a very striking exhibition based around aerial photographs of the area that Tesco hopes to develop.

"This, we think, shows very clearly the true impact of the development if it goes ahead."

Amber Valley Borough Council has already asked Tesco to provide information on the economic impact of the store.
