Protest over supermarket row

Around five hundred people have marched through Sherborne protesting against proposals for a Tesco supermarket.

The demonstration coincided with a consultation by Tesco over plans for a superstore on the outskirts of the town in Dorset. Many shops closed for an hour to show how they think the town centre will be affected.
