Tesco has announced it will no longer build a store on the controversial Northgate site in Bridgwater, Somerset.

Controversy over the plans has continued for years, with protests from local residents concerned about independent shops in the town and the use of part of the Brewery Field green space.

The store would have been built on council land which used to be the site of a community swimming pool, which protestors campaigned unsuccessfully to save from closure.
