Store reopens at troubled centre
Castlepoint Centre
The centre was closed over concerns about the car park's safety
A flagship store has reopened at a shopping centre after it was forced to close over Christmas because of car park safety fears.

The 200m Castlepoint Centre at Bournemouth, Dorset, was closed on 1 December over concerns the concrete in the 3,000-space car park was unsafe.

Marks and Spencer was due to welcome back customers on Monday, while several other stores have already reopened.

The remainder of the shops will open as more car park spaces become available.

The entire centre was closed in the run-up to Christmas but some shops were reopened on 20 December. Work has been carried out to the structure of the controversial car park.
