Shops in Sherborne closed for an hour this lunchtime in protest at plans for a Tesco supermarket. Traders fear the superstore could take business away from the town centre.
Tesco is asking residents for their views. It wants to knock down a hotel on the outskirts of town to make way for the development.
A separate campaign is also underway in favour of the plan. A consultation session is being held at the moment in Digby Hall.
