Developers say they will appeal against a decision to refuse plans for a 20 million pound supermarket on the outskirts of Dumfries.

Dumfries and Galloway Council has rejected proposals for the scheme which would be sited on the town's Annan Road.

Town centre traders had previously raised concerns that if approved the store would affect their business.

Developers CWP say they remain focused on the development.
