A single vote approved controversial plans for an out-of-town supermarket to open up in Stroud.

Last night District Councillors gave the green light for a food retailer to build on Dudbridge Industrial Estate. It's not yet known which supermarket will open there.

The decision went against planning officers' advice to approve different sites on the outskirts of the town.

Joanne Hampton, from Stroud Against Supermarket Saturation, spoke to ITV.
