Work starts on M5's unusual service station

Work has started to create an unusual motorway service station on the M5 after legal moves to stop it were thrown out.

The services, between junctions 11A and 12 (Brookthorpe) in Gloucestershire, are based on a model in the Lake District where the local community benefits rather than the well-known national companies.

Tebay Services on the M6 is family run and has 40 years experience of running independent services with farm shops and home-made produce replacing familiar burger bars and coffee shops.
